Mercedes-Benz 600SL Problems

Internal leaks in load leveling suspension in rear may cause rough ride
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).
Electrical Issues Due to Degraded Engine Wiring Harness

The engine wiring can degrade because the insulating material falls off leaving the bare wire exposed. This can cause many problems depending on which wires are exposed and what they touch.

Premature Tire Wear Due to Cracked Lower Control Arm Bushings

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.
