Steering Wheel Vibration
My 1997 E210 masterpiece vibrates on rough road surface before and even after changing all four tyres. Prior to changing new tyres notice that the two front tyres wear badly on the inner side. Car is not like that before. Tyreman said this model has this camber setting problem. The vibration can feel via the steering wheel. A mechanic recommends changing all the shocks and springs. Can this solve the problem?

Please advise.

Re: Steering Wheel Vibration
Hi skcsec, how are you? Regarding your problem, the front two tyre worn heavily on the inside, have you intentionally lowered your car? If not, check the camber reading on the allignment machine, then adjust accordingly. Then observe the ride height on your front axle when the car is loaded, aka full of people. If the ride height is way too low, this might cause the front tyre have excessive negative camber. You can try changing the spring pad first, and front springs if needed. Over time, the spring can become soft and replacement is dued. Also check whether your car is equipped with adjustable camber nut (some mercs dont). If your merc dont have one, go to any reputable merc spare part shop and buy 4 pieces of those camber stud and nut and fit them on your car.

For steering vibration, ask them to do tyre balancing again. While the tyreman is doing tyre balancing on the machine, observe whether the rim itself is dented or the tyre is fitted properly. If the problem still persist, proceed on doing on-wheel balancing. Do keep us updated you progress bro.

Ya, the suspension is soft. Most probably the spring pads and springs needs replacement. May not be the tyre balancing as both times before replacing and after replacing the tyres the vibration is there. Each time the tyres were sent for balancing.

Thanks bro.

sksec,
My advice,before you proceed to change for a new set of spring and absorber,make sure you get the correct unit for your car as W210 come with 2 type,ie:ELEGANCE and AVANTGARDE..both with different character..

Re: Steering Wheel Vibration
a mechanic advises me to change to a higher spring & absorber set meant for the elegance. Mine is advantgarde. In that case what about the rear? Is that correct?

I remember there is a well known mechanic (2 partners actually - forgot their name) in Puchong. are they still at the same place?
