|Photo DIY- Supporting Joint/Lower Ball Joint R/R|
Well, #1 son admits hitting a Pot-Hole really hard (the Record-Rains have made our roads a mess)
Since then, I have noticed a "vibration" arising from the right front wheel area, most pronounced at
30 mph and 65 mph.
After SAFELY lifting the car, Pry-Bar examination of the suspension system revealed a Loose "Supporting Joint" or "Lower Ball Joint", whatever you want to call it...
Since I had already purchased the Joints for my Mother-in-Law's W202 (the idiot shop who "claimed" they were bad... they were perfectly fine, so I brought them home.)
I decided to give the Meyle HD (Heavy-Duty) versions a try. I'll let you know my impressions later down the road (pardon the pun).
Here are some YouTube clips showing "Normal" and "Aby-Normal" Joints:
PS- "WHY" am I posting a W210 job on a W202 forum?? Because it is the EXACT SAME Job, Torque Values, Part Numbers... Etc.
