Research on Control Arm Bushing for Mercedes E320
In late 2004, Mercedes replaced its three-valve-per-cylinder E320 with the four-valve-per-cylinder E350. The power-to-weight ratio has risen, with the E350 outclassing the E320 by 26bhp-per-ton, adding 3mph to the top speed, while improving fuel consumption by 1.5mpg in city driving. While such on-paper improvements are impressive, they pale next to the gains in response and sportiness. The E 350 goes about its business in a highly efficient and seemingly effortless manner, without ever becoming too loud or harsh. As impressive as it was, the E 320 is outclassed by the E 350.
A vehicle's entire suspension system is made up of several components which play different roles. One such component is the control arm, which connects the front suspension to its frame. There are an upper and a lower control arm in the suspension, each having a bushing, made up of a rubber lining encased between two metal sleeves, at their ends. Such placement helps cushion the vehicle from small bumps and vibrations. The inner metal sleeve is connected to car frame by a center bar. The outer sleeve is connected to the wheel assembly by the control arm. Both the sleeves move independently from each other, and it is the rubber bushing that provides a lubrication between them. Considering that they bear a huge amount of stress with every drive, these bushings wear out quickly by hardening and cracking.
How can I tell when it is time for a control arm bushing replacement?
The steering may lose a bit of its responsiveness. At high speeds, it may cause the vehicle to turn erratically. The vehicle may start leaning to one side when taking sharp turns.
Is it necessary to replace the bad bushing right away?
Yes, especially in the event of extreme damage, when the rubber bushing is completely worn out, and the metal sleeves of the control arm start to rattle, resulting in an unpleasant noise from the front end. Moreover, the wheel with a damaged bushing will begin to wobble while driving.
What is an axle slip?
A damaged bushing will make the axle slip momentarily when the steering wheel is moved from left to right.
Can a bad bushing cause uneven tire wear?
When there seems to be a problem with a wheel, raise that end with a jack and get under the vehicle. Observe the edges of the tire. If it is wearing out unevenly, either from the inside or the outside, this is due to a wheel misalignment caused by a bad control arm bushing. The central tread may also show a scuffed pattern. Some of these symptoms can also be attributed to worn-out tie rod ends, sway bar links, ball joints, or even the control arms themselves. So, when in doubt, get the vehicle examined by a professional.
What is the Mercedes E320 Control Arm Bushing replacement cost?
