I have had my mercedes in several times for a "clunking noise" in the rear end on acceleration. It has been diagnose as a faulty "drag Link" by more than 1 repair facility. I have had the work done on several occasions. The noise will dissapear for approximately 6 months and resurface. I seem to be in a "fix the symptom not the problem situation" My question consists of this. #1 what is a drag link? Where is it located?? And what could cause it to.....
Also, what is the clunking noise - I see no rub marks on the drive shaft - I have replaced universal joints - rear differential and axles have all been gone through with no damage found. rear coil springs and shocks have been replaced. Help!
I am sick of paying for the same repair. Three times now, and I still dont know what a drag link is......

The drag link is in the front suspension. IT is the connecting rod for the right front wheel to the power steering sector. It is possible that the shop is using lesser than OE quality parts. Have this checked. (I would use Lemforter(sp?) Only!!!!
