    I thought all E class estates had SLS?

    Someone more knowledgeable will be along, no doubt ..

    Dave, you do have SLS...all E class estates do. It is hydraulic, with spheres as stated above.

    It could be the heat shield above the rear silencer...they come loose.

    Rear subframe bushes are a possibility.

    It's common for the roll bar brackets rot and come adrift from the body of the vehicle.
