I drove 1000+ miles at highway speeds on a right rear tire with severe tread separation before I could get the tires replaced, would this cause a problem. Also I ran over an unidentified bump in the highway in the same time frame. after this trip I had a hydraulic oil leak that stopped after several days, about 1/2 ounce leaked out just forward of the right rear wheel. any suggestions on where the oil may have leaked from. My SL has sport suspension.

This would seem to require a visual inspection to see where the fluid leaked from. Have you had it checked out?
The right rear suspension is leaking hydraulic fluid, where is the resevoir to refill the fluid? Thx
