MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 DIY Mercedes W201 190 Front and Rear Suspension including springs shocks struts

REAR suspension First you will need to jack the car up and put it on a jack stand and remove the wheel. On some models you will also have to remove the plastic cover for the bottom armwhich is held on by 4 10mm boltarrowed 1 and 2 with another 2 on the other side of the arm to change the shock undo bolt Awhich is a 17mm head and nutthen undo bolt Ecompress the shock and it comes out. to remove the

I tired to do the front with the same spring compressor but it didnt work. The long bolts kept hitting the spring mount. Also the spring hooks on the spring compressor would turn so they werent equally the same distance apart on each side of the spring. I just gave up and got the MB spring compressor.

Yes. Same suspension setup.

Quote You dont need spring compressors for the front end. so you are saying I can pull the LCA bolts like the rear and pull the spring. I was thinking about that but it seems that it would be very hard to line up 2 holse perfect. I did this on the back and it was cake. I just paid MB 191 to swap my fronts yesterday. I dont have the correct spring compressor and the one I was using took for ever.

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Even out frontrear 190e suspension...lowering question

The front of my 1984 190e 2.3 sits approximately 1.5 inches higher than the rear (off of the tires) and my strutsshocks are shot. Lowering the front 1.5 inches with the H&R touring kit (springsstruts) would even this out if I keep the factory rear springs w new shocks. Will bad things happen if I install only the front portion of the H&R Touring Kit while maintaining the factory rear springs with some

Quote Originally Posted by ChrisFball I have this current set up on my car for more than a year. H&Rs on the front and stock springs in the back.

What youve got on the rear of your 16V is a lot closer to matching the H&Rs than any of the other 190s would...

What I noticed is when just replacing the fronts and running stock rears the back end felt light when pushing the corners hard. So I went back and cut down the rear coils 1 12 twits (from the top). Now it feels stable. In a stock setting there is always a larger wheel gap in the front. Its just the way the fenders are cut and designed to look. By trying to match front to rear you are throwing the balance

Thanks for the information - sounds like the H&R fronts w sagging rear (the 190s not mine) may not be the best solution.

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 hydropneumatic suspension or front and rear SLS

Can anybody here verify if the hydropneumatic suspension on a w126 560 sel is the same used in the 190e evos Im interested in the SLS front and rear systems thanks

Or can any body give me information (parts numbers diagrams etc) on the evos front and rear SLS system thanks

Hi There are two different systems 201 has SLS on front and rear axle with levels setting function. 126 has hydro-pneumatic suspension with levels setting function. The main differencies is that 126 has only hydraulic struts but 201 has coil springs and shock-absorbers with self-levelling function.

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Replacing ball joint in front suspension.

The time has come again for the annual inspection (known as an MOT test here in Britain) and my 190E needs a lower ball joint replacing on the front suspension - this is the joint which allows the hub carrier to swivel on the lower wishbone. Also known as a steering swivel or kingpin I guess. Anyone got details of the procedure for replacing this and know of any reason why it couldnt be done at home

It cannot be done at home unless you have a ball joint press available to say the least. Even then unless youve done it before it is not recommended for the first timer. Your mechanic can buy the ball joint seperately or there are available entire lower arms on the aftermarket (but these are really unecessary To replace the lower ball joint the old one must be pressedknocked out and a new one pressed

I have done it myselph. It is bolted to the hub carrier and pressed into the wishbone. To remove the old one you can use a large hammer to knock it out while supporting the wishbone from below but I would recomend a special tool or a press to install the new one (what is the point of installig a new joint if you hammer it it). I instaled mine with replica of a mercedes tool ilustrated in the workshop manuel without removing the wishbone. Good luck...

According to the numbers on the diagram the faulty ball joint is 10726 and it fits into the end of the wishbone 10974. Taking the front suspension to bits is no problem for me - I have coil spring compressors and stuff. What I couldnt see was how the joint fits to the wishbone. I can buy a ball joint over-the-counter at the local mercedes parts dept real cheap and I can buy a new wishbone real expensive

All numbers in the picture are from Lemforder parts catalog (cheaper but also deutsch quality) Part number of the ball-joint 124 333 03 27 Part number for the left Track Control Arm wishbone 124 330 30 07 Part number for the right front Track Control Arm wishbone 124 330 31 07

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Squeaky front suspension

Hello all I have a 1984 190D and the front suspension squeaks constantly when i turn or drive down bumpy roads. Most of the noise comes from the passenger side. The steering can also be a little bit stiff at slow speeds. This problem started only recently after the battery died on the car and I was forced to turn the wheel wo power steering. Does this sound like part of the steering could be broken or bent Im hoping I can fix the problem by simply lubing up the joints... Any suggestions thanks

Ball joints do not make for a good first DIY project... But nevertheless I spent the past 2 days tearing apart my passenger side suspension to fix the squeaky joint. Turning is much quieter now and I feel like the steering wheel is much tighter. I still need to replace the Drivers side joint but Im going to hold out till I get new shocks and do it all at once. I had an impossible time finding a spring

I had the same problem and I changed my sway bar bushings in the front and no more squeaking but before replacing the bushings I had the sway bars repainted because in the spots where the bushings are mounted paint had flaked off which i thought might have added to the squeaky noise. Hope that helps

Here is a coilspring compressor for mercedes. The one made in the U.S. is 600 the Taiwan shown was just bought by a buddy on the W126 for about 180. There might be places to rent though.

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Were TRW parts fitted by Mercedes on the back as well as the front W201 suspension

Gday Folks Question Were TRW parts fitted by mercedes on the back as well as the front W201 suspension Reason for asking Dealer parts cost the best part of 100 euros for a rear suspension strut and I need eight of the buggers - so thats not going to happen. I can buy a complete Lemforder kit of struts for about 230 euros but the TRW parts come in quite a bit cheaper... ...if I were to go light in

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Front Suspension

I have a spring with front shock ready to install. There is a smaller spring 12inch approx. long - near the front. I have junk yard dealer who claims it doesnt exist. Any place near Kitchener (near Toronto) that has that spring Thanks

1993. 2.3 Smaller spring near front bumper.

All 190s have only 1 spring per corner.

All 190s only have one spring per corner unless the PO modified it with coilovers or something.

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Front end suspension ()

OK now Im going NUTS everything was ok and one morning (today) I realised that the steering wheel feels as if a couple of Gremlins were trying to steer the car for me. Just minute very slight nudging of the steering wheel as if the car had a mind of its own.Its not a steady pull its just as if the wheels wanted to go on its own way (each one separately). Tire pressure is ok so two suggestions Ive heard

Thanks Guys. To hell with multilink suspension... what about an....alignment

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Front Suspension Bottoming Out.

When I bought my car it had a busted spring in the front. So I bought a pair of OEM standard front springs and got them installed. I also replaced the front struts with new Monroe Sens-a-Trac struts. then I replaced everything else in the front end too except the control arm bushings. So ever since the springs have been replaced it bottoms out on almost any bump and I can push the car down by hand

Your front end shouldnt be that loose that you can push it so far down with stock springs even if the struts arent installed. It sounds to me like you may have the wrong springs on the car dunno what else there is though...

Well they fit perfectly just seem too soft Before they were installed I could compress them just a bit on the garage floor with my 230 lb body weight. Maybe they sent me rears as fronts Are rear springs shorter These were pretty long out of the box.

Maybe they sent me rears as fronts Are rear springs shorter These were pretty long out of the box. Rear springs are an incompatible (smaller) diameter. I almost wonder if they sent you 2.3 springs or something. Do

Stock ride height although it looks low in the front because of the springs.

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Squeaking in the front suspension

Not sure what this is but its so loud I dont know if its safe. It squeaks when you the turn the wheel (even at a standstill) or when the suspension compresses (moving or not). And its LOUD. Bad shock Missing spring pad Dry ball joint

Ball joints... fix them...ASAP If the ball joint fails the entire front end will collapse. I personally wouldnt drive the car till the ball joints were fixed. WARNING Failed Ball Joints - 190 Revolution
