1993 Mercedes-Benz 600SL Problems

Internal leaks can cause problems with the load leveling suspension in the rear; the vehicle may ride harshly (no give in the suspension, like you are riding on a brick).

The lower control arm bushings can wear and crack, resulting excessive movement at the control arm pivot point, leading to irregular and premature tire wear. Worn Ball joints can also cause similar tire wear symptoms. I some cases it may be necessary to replace the lower control arm, including bushings & ball joint to correct this concern.

A rough running motor or lack of power can be caused by the distributor cap and rotor.
