I reciently purchased a 1991 420SEL. No body damage (original body panels and paint). As part of the purchase deal, new tires were installed on the car. I had alignment done. I have problems when traveling over 65MPH. It begins with a very slight tremmor in steering wheel. Then at about 70 MPH, I get this faint hollow-echoing sound and the car feels like it is losing it weigh-ness (?). Then noise in front end. Also, have hard time keeping car going straight -- always correcting. Had tires re-balanced with no change. Took to highly recommended MB mechanic. He replaced upper control arm/joint and lower control arm bushings on left side. Also did lubed lt side suspension joints/parts. Re-aligned car but same problem. He fully checked rt side suspension and states all is o.k. No work/ck done to rear suspension. He is stumped and so am I. Any suggestions?

The only thing you can try is to replace the shocks. This car, with its age, could probably use it anyway.
