Hi all,

I have an 84 W126 500SEL with SLS rear suspension. I'm having the rear struts rebuilt by a WW shocks here in Brisbane. Unfortunately the ball joints on the structs are gone. A previous owner drilled a hole for a grease nipple which has destroyed them. So now I'm after replacement ball joints...

Do anyone know where I can source these? Like the struts they're NLA but apparently the ball joint is identical to all cars with rear SLS so a lot of people must be in a similar predicament. I believe the part number is 116 320 08 28.

Thanks,
Matt.

Hi Matt,

I saved this bookmark a while back.
Not cheap, but these guys list having them.


Never used them myuself, so if you do end up giving them a go, I would be interested in your experience.

According to the guys doing the strut rebuild, polymer injection doesn't work because of the forces these struts have to deal with. I'd be keen to hear if anyone else has had success?

I’m not sure what other services are offered but it might be worth a call or drop in the joints for assessment?
