    Lemforder Wishbones W124

    Hi I noticed if you order the Lemforder wishbones for a W124 you get a selection of nuts and a bolt with it. Could someone tell me what these are for? I'm guessing the bolt and one nut is to replace the ones on the ball joint, two others are for the anti roll bar but that still leaves two...

    New Febi 124 Wishbones- bush check please

    Hello I've just picked up a pair of Febi wishbones for my S124. Had a good read through a few posts here about these and decided that I'd replace them at 130k miles as a precautionary measure. Don't like the idea of an adrift front wheel! This post from WDB124066...

    W210 - Pattern Lower Wishbones?

    Has anyone had any experience with pattern lower wish bones on thier W210? I'm guessing the downside will be larger tolerances which will affect alignment and handling, lighter materials and weaker bushing material affecting wear and handling. Or am I wrong? I've been quoted £124.ea new ones...

    Opinions needed on my W202 wishbones

    Hi All, Not unlike many other W202 owners I have today been handed an MOT Failure Sheet due to failure on the Front lower wishbone rear bushes (excessive movement blahdy blahdy blah). Now as the new arms/ labour is going to cost a bomb and I was considering lowering the car anyway, I know the...

    Lower ball joint replacement on W201 front wishbones

    Hi, I've noticed a noise appearing from the driver's side front wheel area on my manual 2.5-16, it sounds like a squeeking/squeal type sound which is more noticable when steering. I haven't driven the car for a couple of weeks, jacked it up to have a very quick look but I haven't got...
