Look what happend recently...

....at the workshop in a small town in Germany.

I replaced all the rubber bearings of my front axle, the kinkpins, the shocks, the brake discs and pads.

Well, I have to tell you something: The car handles like new

So before you fiddle around with the steering box look for the rubber material. Thats where the play usually comes from.

Kind regards
Eberhard

Cool picture and shop!! I have recently replaced a lot of the steering rubber and things of that sort on my w124 and I say the same. I even had a nice compliment by a member of the female gender....yes believe it or not I let her drive Sadie

Well, some of the rubbers really looked scary. One of them at the upper strut totally desintegrated.

I can strongly recommend everybody to check the axles very carefully. They really make the difference.

Kind regards
Eberhard

Well, it is actually three of us who rented the shop. (it is me in the front and actually two other friends, but at least you get an idea)

It used to be a real repair shop and we took over all the equipment, like a SUN Digital Tester, the jack, the compressor and air system etc.

To make it even better, I rented the apartment just above the shop. To live together with you automobiles can't get any better

Kind regards
Eberhard
