Hi guys
Posting virgin here:Oops:
My faithful 92 300TE is getting a little vague on the road. To be fair it has done 195000miles.
I would like to give it a birthday and change various bushes/joints where neccessary. Could someone give me an idea of what bits would freshen up the old girl.
I am capable of doing most of the work myself and prefer using genuine parts, but any pointers would be good.

Paul

Welcome to the forum,, the bottom swivels should be checked, levering them to check for play,,the same with the track rod ends. What can affect it is the front rear sub frame mounts, as these can make the car change coarse when you accelerate
