Anti-roll bar bushes

I should have known.

I'm sorry for doubting you guys.

My E200 Wagon has had a knocking on the front suspension since I bought her 3 years ago at 80k miles. I got this over bumps and so on. Not a real problem but irritating. Never failed the MOT (annual test ) either so I lived with it.
Also I had squeaking when the weather was dry for a while. (I'm in England so, no this noise didn't bother me too much )

I read a good number of threads here that suggested that anti-roll bar bushes on W124s is known to cause this, but I thought, naaa. This is louder, more rattly, not enough miles.

So I considered changing the dampers and goodness knows what else.
But I read some more and thought, well for 12 odd (about $18 US) what can I lose?
Well, I lost the noise ( we've had a dry spell here in England).
I lost the knocking
I lost the kickback through the wheel. She really drives so well.

Sorry again for doubting you. This forum really is SO good.

I'm also an engineer that believes in the KISS principal (Keep It Simple, Stupid!)

I assume this is what you mean by KISS.

Have a great day,
