Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I would say both front and rear. It sounds like a shock absorber is loose or something like that.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I dont notice anything wrong with the steering. It tracks fine and is responsive.
Mercedes Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

For problem to be in front and rear would mean you have more then 1 problem. The most common cause of rattling noise in front is worn stabilizer bushings which is about a 3 hour job shop rate and $100 for the parts so around $400 total at a shop depending on where you go. The shocks don't usually cause noise so I doubt that is it. Let me know if you have more questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks
