    Hi Guys

    I have all my bits for my front end. I'm changing all arms and joints. I've scheduled work for within the next two weeks. Just wanted to ask if the w211 e class has a Bentley repair manual? How can I get torque specs for bolts on front end?

    Best place to get them would be from the Mercedes service manual which is WIS - Workshop Information System. I can send the pdf files to you if you let me know exactly what your planning on replacing.

    Most of the the suspension bolts are torque and angle tightened on the W211 as well as most other Mercedes-Benz just for your information.

    What did you mean by Bentley manual, I can't see how this is relevant?

    It's like a haynes manual on steds?
    I'm doing all the front...

    1) upper ball joints
    2) lower ball joints
    3) inner tie rod
    4) outer track rod
    5) both sets of lower wish bones (That's both pairs so the 4 main arms)
    6) sway bar links

    I think I know which arm the torque strut is, but then there's another set of arms, the lower rear wishbones? Do you have the the torque for these too... the shock absorber and lower ball joint bolt into this arm.
