CONSIDER THESE QUESTIONS
When was the last time you checked your bushes?
Your subframe bushings are essential to reduce vibrations, prevent movement and reduce the friction of components. Worn rubber bushes will cause the variety of issues, including scuttle shake when the structure of the vehicle lacks torsional stiffness, while worn rear subframe bushes will cause the vehicle to feel unpredictable at the rear. Once inspected on a ramp, we’ll be able to evidence worn bushes and advise on a timeline to replace each bushing with a choice of replacements according to your budget.
Are you struggling to hit the apex when cornering?
Precise steering is the difference between an enjoyable drive and a dangerous, terrifying one. Vague and unresponsive steering will mean your steering box needs adjusting or checking for leaks. Our craftsmen know exactly what the R107’s steering should feel like and how to achieve this. This simple adjustment will revive your love for driving your classic Mercedes.
Have you lost the spark in your relationship?
Poor engine running can cause frustration and fear. While extremely reliable and renowned for its advanced German engineering, the R107’s engine is not without its idiosyncrasies. If you’re struggling to start your R107 engine from cold, experiencing flat spots when accelerating or rough idling, your engine and associated components will need investigating and likely replacing. The engine is the beating heart of your R107 SL experience and investing in this area of your vehicle will completely reignite your ownership experience.
