Same Same

Got same thing on my 92 500SEL..started @ 125k, got progressively on both sides....I've sprayed everything and taken it to dealer. Best I can do is "feel" squeak when I hold shock cover. QUITE annoying. Hope someone has an answer.

squeaky rear shocks?

never heard of that before. Vibration where? The bottom ball joint is separately replaceable--but never heard of one wearing out. I suppose it can also be greased with a needle injector

the vibration was felt on the shock cover when moving the car around to make the squeak noise

i was told that rear shocks need to be changed out to fix the noise

do you know if the rear air suspenison shocks take some kind of gas like nitrogen cell???
