Certainly they could be got for the W215...from where I know not.
Interestingly within the strut there is a coil spring:
which strut is that a rear ... i think any block would have to be like a bump stop between the lower arm and.....
Yeah thats a rear but the front is similar.
Yes, spring is for <4Hz oscillations.
thought so could not see ball joint ,part of front strut.another grand design.no
Indded. Having said that I can't see why it shouldn't be possible to press in a new balljoint assuming one is available in the right size (from looking at my spare front strut).
We started studying this on the forum right when I first joined. The conclusion was that pressing in a new ball joint would be entirely possible and cost around £150 a corner all told- for the 215. New balljoints are available for the 230 already and it's those that seem to wear out, not so much on the 215.
Nope, that's a front one for a W215.
Your're right - no lower mounting eye.
It's a front one for the W215. Indeed it was a block fitted above the upper arm.
love a picture of that......
lk i did some research on that about 2 yr ago ,posts on here somewhere ,i found a site offering them ,i seem to remember about 160 euro each ,but out of stock and never able to advise when they would have stock .i to sure it can be done, suspect benz interfered with supply , which prob was same as benz outsource at that time its on here just dont know where as i dont think i started the subject .
lk found that https://www.abcteile24.de/shop/ see if you can scroll down past all the struts and pumps . the origional subject was lower abc strut ball joint july 19 2016 ajlsl600
where did you see new ball joints for r230 i only saw the ones from a non abc strut cut out and the ones mentioned just now to lk
Looks like they're in stock again (and cheaper).
Don't use them, don't trust them. I still have a €480 pump that failed within 3 days that they've refused to honour their warranty on.
great. must go in from the top. and once in simply cant get out. q is.. is the knurled dia right .anyone used them yet.
right, reply as was typing mine. lets see if anyone had any result with them on his issue and on pump what were the grounds for refusal of warranty.
Replacing the ABC with coilovers...............
