You need to replace your Steering Shock Stabilizer. It is located between the two front wheels. It looks like a shock that is lying side ways under the vehicle. It is VERY EASY to replace. The part should cost you around $200 at an Auto Parts place that sells MB parts. I took my vehicle to a local Kwik Lube shop and they installed it for $15. Total cost to me as around $220. Sure beats the $400 the stealership wants to charge you.
