Link rod (link pin or sway bar link) replacement
Mercedes-Benz 280-500SL/C link rod (link pin or sway bar link) replacement
Have you ever wondered how a Mercedes-Benz 280-500SL/C, or any car for that matter, manages to so stay on all four wheels when it’s driven around a corner?
Included amongst the wonderful components of a Mercedes-Benz 280-500SL/C’s suspension system, there is a device called the sway bar (also known as a stabiliser bar or anti-roll bar) which works to prevent body roll.
If your Mercedes-Benz 280-500SL/C is clunking from around the wheels, the tyres are wearing unevenly and the steering is loose, then there is a good chance there is a suspension problem and it could be coming from your Mercedes-Benz 280-500SL/C’s link rods.
It is recommended to replace the left and right side link rods at the same time. Your Mercedes-Benz 280-500SL/C will be noisy and will become harder to control on cornering when there is a problem with the link rod.
If left for too long, tyres can wear too and replacing tyres can be more expensive than replacing the link rod. Best to replace a link rod as soon as you can to make sure your Mercedes-Benz 280-500SL/C is handling well.
