    Hi Everyone!

    Hoping someone on here may know offhand what size (m6 or m8) I suspected the 3x securing nuts on the suspension spheres on the S210 mercedes are. I am away from the car for another week and sourcing the parts. cant find any reference to the 3x securing nuts. I am preempting that they will probably shear on the old ones so sourcing new ones. Stay in the sticks so don't want to start this and have to run to town to get nuts.

    Thanks in advance!

    IIRC a M10 or M8 socket fits.
    Soak them well beforehand. The mounting brackets tend to bend about a bit.
    The big pipe union nut is the tricky one.

    Thanks very much mate...I have got some nuts..the thread is M6 and head is 10mm
    I suspect the brackets will be in very poor condition if the rest of the car is anything to go by. I have bought a set of flare spanners to do the job as I believe the union is quite easy to round using a standard open end
