Cool 1992 500SL Suspension Question

Hello All,

I have just bought my first SL. A 1992 500 model. Its a nice machine and drives brillantly, however I do have a question on the suspension.

When driving on rougher roads there is a slight clicking noise coming drom the underside of the car, which I think is suspension related. Is this a normal occurence??

Thanks
Vince.

My '90 clicks all the time. It has "ADS" adjustable damper system. I can hear electronic-type clicks from somewhere under the car at very regular intervals. Main dealer could not diagnose anything wrong. Car seems to be behaving properly, so I'm not concerned. If you find out what it is please let us know.
