|Photo DIY- Supporting Joint R/R|
After noticing a VERY subtle (albeit noticeable) vibration, which my Buttocks felt like it was coming from the Right Front Wheel region.
Upon applying a Lever to the Supporting Joint? There is a a 1 mm "play" in the right joint. Translating such a tiny amount of play into "Vibration at 60 mph" is about what I am feeling.
Since the Joints are original, and have 18 years, and 183,000 miles of Rough, Lousy, roads on them?? I felt I would simply change them out.
After the Change? The Vibration I was feeling?? GONE!!!
I went with Lemforder brand, which seems to be the Go-To Brand for Suspension parts.
The Post is merely a Color Photo Regurgitaion of WIS. No cutesie tricks. I'm sure there are lots-o-other-ways of performing the change, without any of the MB specified tools. I am simply going "by-the-book".
*IMPORTANT NOTE*!! If you are performing the joint change with the Springs Installed?? The Shock-Absorber *MUST* be Installed.
As ALWAYS, work *SAFELY*!!
