W140 Front Suspension


There is a thumping/rattling sound coming from the front end of the car while i go over bumps/potholes/grooves in the road, etc. I am thinking it is some sort of bushing/bearing that needs to be replaced. I don't experience the sound over smooth pavement, or LARGE potholes, just over little bumps, etc. Has any of you W140 owners experienced this? Any ideas on what it could be?

I have the same noise in my S500, and it was diagnosed as sway bar links. Apparently very common in 140's with over 100K miles.
