I know this is a gsxr specialty,
I have been looking at suspension parts on parts.com. I wouldn't dare order parts without the correct part numbers.
I just bought a new set of Michelin Super Sports 245/18 & 275/18.The Michelin Pilot Sports on the car have around 24K Miles on them and have become very noisy.
Before I install the new shoes I want to install some new front suspension parts.
Lately I have noticed that hitting certain potholes and such that there is some noise coming from the front end and loose feeling steering also my left front tire appears to be worn down more than the right side.
I checked it out last week and I found the drag link knuckle next to the pitman arm to be worn and also the drivers side tie rod seem a lot looser that the passenger side. Also I have one bad stablizer bar bushing (under the dreaded power steering hose leak)
I need to order my tie rod ends and the drag link.
Parts.com shows tie rod ends seperate from the rod for around $22.00 ea and the complete tie rod assembly with 2 knuckles for $85.00.
I would prefer the seperate ends for each side if possible. Mercedes only sells the assembly.
1. Need Tie rod ends
2 for Left Side
2 ea for Right Side
2. Need Drag Link
3. Need 4 ea Front stablizer bar bushings
4. Maybe a Steering Damper - Will order later if after I check it out.
5. Maybe the Right and Left front struts. - With 126K Miles on the originals I am looking for input on strut life. I see no leaks and don't want to change unless necessary.
6. If I change the struts I want to replace the upper spring pads 25mm or 4 tabs.
Dave, Thanks in advance for your help.
