hi everyone,i have recently bought a clk320 avantgarde 2000 x reg and it seems to be making knocking /runbling sounds when going over rough ground/speed humps,i have had different mercs in the past and this sound has usually been down to the droplinks so i was not too concerned when test driving it,i had a better look today but can not see the drop links on this car!
do these models have drop links and if not what should i be looking at that might be causing these noises thanks in advance

I had a similar problem early this year I had to have the ball joints replaced as well. Cost almost half the price at an indie that it did at the dealership!
