About three months ago I hit a large pothole (drivers side) I did major damage to my suspension. I own a 2000 Mercedes S500. I have already had the air ride system and compressor looked at, but I am still experience some rough riding and some labored steering. Should I get the control alarm assembly looked at? About how long does that repair take and how much should it cost. (Fair price, dealership wanted 1500.00 to do the ball joints and pack the bearings. That's without replacing the control arm bushings) ouch! Help!
My car has 169000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
