    "Bouncy" W163

    I've had my W163 ML350 from new, 9 years ago, and it's covered 39,000 miles. I have noticed that it's quite "wallowy" on undulating roads and bendy roads. I'm not sure if it's always been like this - but I don't think so. Could the shock absorbers be ready for replacement? It's only low...

    W124 estate with a bouncy rear end.

    I've got my hands on a '92 200TE with a REALLY REALLY bouncy rear suspension. From other threads I presume this is down to failed damping valves in the accumulators/spheres. Can anyone point me to a source of spheres that don't cost the earth. I had a name a while back of a member here who...

    Engine mounts replaced - still bouncy

    well I just replaced both the engine mounts on the W124 250 TD. One of the old ones rattled (after I took it off), so I took that as a good sign. First one took about an hour to figure out how to do, second, with hindsight took 10 minutes! The engine still moves quite a deal from side to...

    W124 bouncy seats

    HI, I have just become the proud owner of an 89 W124 230TE and love it - accept for the front seats, which are very bouncy! The result is that every time I hit large bump, being 6'4" I quite literally hit the roof! Can anything be done about this or are they just worn out? Cheers Jos
