Eibech Pro Expirence
I am hoping someone can help me out. I have a 2005 SLK350 that I bought second hand through this forum, the vehicle is said to have Eibech pro lowering springs. It sits low, so I assume that it does.
My Question: Does anybody else have these springs installed (The search indicates yes) and are they seeing irregular tire wear in the rear? My rear tires seem to be wearing very unevenly.
The inside of both the tires wore out in 7,500 miles! I could take a picture and upload it a little later today to show you the difference.
Nov 16th 2011: I had new BFG rears put on at 102,000 miles
I noticed that the left rear inside tread was gone, but the outside still had plenty of tread. The tire installer did mention that the rims were bent. To help isolate, I switched the rims from left to right to see if I got the same wear.
October 20th 2012: New Rims and Tires installed all around (18' Mandrus Wilhelm & Nitto Motivo tires) at 109,501 miles, because the inside tread on both tires again were gone, while the outside still had tread.
November 14th 2012: Took vehicle to MB dealer for 4 wheel alignment. They installed 2 bolt kits in front left. and mentioned that alignment is within factory spec. I pull out of the dealership with my brother behind me in another vehicle and I drive through a puddle heading down the road, he calls me on my cellphone and says that he can only see half the tire tread outline on the pavement from the water puddle. (indicating to me again that the tire is not sitting 'flat')
Looking for any assistance, is anyone else seeing this behavior in their vehicle? Is their anything I can do? When I called the dealer, they said it is a modified suspension, and if they have some specs they can try and correct it...
