Tire Wear Caused By Worn Front Thrust Link Bushings on Mercedes-Benz C230

Irregular and premature tire wear can be caused by the front thrust link bushings cracking and causing excessive movement in the suspension. The thrust link bushings are fluid-filled (to help reduce vibration), so if they crack, they will leak oil.
