Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1982 Mercedes Benz 300td Two Wheel Drive Automatic 250, 00 miles
Can't fill in cylinder because there is no option above to say, "5 cyllinders!"
Car is sitting a bit low at the rear end and the wheels appear to me as if they are splayed outward a bit where the rubber meets the road. Could the lowness be caused by a compemsator problem?
I had that problem years ago with another Mercedes and replaced the hydraulic compensator with a massive coil spring. That fixed my problem.
In fact, does the 1982 TD have a compensator joining the helical axles?
I know that for years one of the coil suspension springs has been broken - it may be an inch shorter than it should be - but could the lowness be caused by very tired coil springs, or the compentsator, or have the shock absorbers given up?
Rear end seems a bit dead when I hit a pothole.
I'm just wondering what the problem is likely to be?
Could I safely ignore it?
Many thanks. James.
have the same problem?
