w140 300se suspension recomendations

Post by pina4greg » Wed 06 Sep, 2017 1:21 am

My old girl is 25 years old and I do not know if the suspension has had any parts replaced over the years. She has done 159k so far. Appears to have been regularly serviced up to 130k in about 2010. No recorded work since then. What would likely need to be replaced by now?

Cheers for the advice.
