After purchasing new Michelins, we noticed a rhythmic thump and slight steering wheel shudder that varied with speed. It took 2 visits to MB service to diagnose and $1100 later we have new control arm bushings(cracked), new engine and trans mounts (these were collapsing). Granted, it is a noticably smoother ride, however, I've never heard or these problems. It's a 1997 C280 with 80K, regularly maintained (purhased used/starmarked 2 years ago).

We've also recently had to replace shifter bushings and a steering shock.

Should these issues be expected so early or standard wear.
Thanks,
Bill
