MB Paul :

Hi, My name is Paul & I will try to assist you.

MB Paul :

In the first instance check all rear bushes & joints for any signs of wear - check the rear road springs for breaks (they often break right inside the lower arm so check carefully) and the shock absorbers for leaks.

MB Paul :

If all of this is ok with no signs of wear then a common problem for skipping in this way is incorrectly set up rear tracking.

MB Paul :

The rear track is adjustable on Mercedes & a full 4 wheel alignment should be carried out & brought back into spec if any setting is out.

MB Paul :

Also check the tyres for correct pressure & uneven wear.

MB Paul :

Best regards, Paul
