Have Mercedes Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** can I help?
I saw your initial post but not exactly sure what your question is. Offhand it sounds like you either have a wheel balance issue or a very loose steering linkage or suspension bushing or ball joint. Something like this will require an inspection of the front suspension.
You'd be surprised at how bad a wheel can shake when it's out of balance. You might try rotating the tire to the rear and see if anything changes. If it still vibrates there must be some loose suspension or linkage. A bad shock can cause vibration but not as likely as the loose suspension.
Hi, I'm just following up with you on the Mercedes question. Was my answer helpful?
Hi, if the front shocks feel about the same when you bounce the front end up and down I don't think a shock will help. If one side is real soft or overly firm it could be the problem. A seized brake caliper could also cause the problem. I'd make sure that the wheel turns freely.
Let me know how you make out. Please remember to rate my service when you are done.
