HI Chaps, Hope everyone is well.

I have a knock at the rear of my w208 CLK. Mainly over big bumps and curbs etc.

Is there any usual suspects? I'm thinking maybe roll bar drop links as its seems to be at both sides but is hard to tel.

I may be willing to replace all the multi link bushes does any one have part numbers and maybe a diagram?

many thanks

Chris

The only way to tell is to go under with an iron bar, and lever all of the joints.

The mag is free from trade outlets like parts co and similar motor factors

It will be either the rear springs or the shock absorbers. Remember to replace in pairs.

Looks to be the drop links not being tight with the roll bar!
