    S210 rear suspension spheres

    Hi, has anyone done these as a diy fix? I'm sure I saw a guide on here but after an hour of looking I can't find it! Any things to avoid or special tools? Thanks. Sent from my SM-T365 using Tapatalk

    S210 spheres?

    My S210 has made a thump from the rear end for a few months. It appeared to be after going over bumps, as if it was when the suspension was rebounding. Within the last week, it now appears to be a very hard ride and there is little to no travel in the rear suspension. But the ride height...

    560 SEC sls spheres

    Just installed new spheres and the car rides just like before, hard as nails! Do they have a shelf life or could it be the rams ?

    W124 Estate Spheres

    A pair of W124 rear suspension spheres. These were changed when I changed all the rear suspension pipes/hoses. No noticable difference in ride quality after changing them , so they are probably OK. Andy

    240td suspension spheres

    I am going to change the rear suspension spheres on the self-levveling suspension. Does anyone know the best place to buy these in the UK? I assume I drain the fluid or at least take off pressure, unbolt the old ones, bolt in the new ones, replace the fluid and bingo! Is it any more complicated...

    SLS spheres

    Today I finished building a sphere testing rig...well it's not quite finished as I need to make a wooden plinth for it, but it's fully functional. It's not really designed for testing Mercedes spheres, but with a bit of fabrication I could make an adapter for testing them to see if they are...

    SLS Spheres on a W124 - the results of changing them

    I went out for a drive with Nick Froome in the W124 estate last week, a few days before a service booked with Olly. The manifestation of a misfiring problem in spades meant that that could be sorted, but it was intriguing to have someone so aware of what a W124 ride should be in the car. I...

But is there an easy way to check that they do actually need replacing as apparently some suspension work was...

    W124 Replaced Spheres, Awesome!

    Hi There. After six months of hitting head on the roof every time I went over a bump, I finally replaced the spheres today - What a difference, the car is now perfectly smooth again, a joy to be in. Delay was in getting a replacement pipe from the pump. Old one was leaking, new one was...

    Hi. The sphere's are knackered on my w124 estate (250TD) apparently. I'm not 100% sure what they are, and what they do, if you could explain to me i'd be most grateful. Thankyou. Tim
