RE:FAULTY REPAIR OF FRONT SHOCK AB

2002 Mercedes Benz SL500

Tires and Wheels problem

Hi,

About 10 days after service [when the car got a clean bill of health], the front RHS shock absorber broke. The Mercedes garage only asked that I replace this [rather than both shock absorbers] and as soon as I got the car back it wasn't right - apparently the wheel rims and tyres [when I took the car back] were damaged and there is a lot of road noise/braking noise which wasn't there before.

Could this be due to them NOT having replaced both shock absorbers initially?

Yesterday, I had the second shock absorber replaced but the problem is still there.

Really would appreciate your views.

Best
