Asked by Jul 06, 2008 at 05:57 AM about the 1998 Mercedes-Benz C-Class 4 Dr C230 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The front left shock tower tore, (while parking the car believe it or not), and the coil spring and spacer was ejected. A leaking shock is all of the collateral damage observed. There is a certain amount of wasted metal in both weld areas, but other that that the tower looks to be in excellent shape except for being bent up of course. Can this be safely repaired? Body shop work? The car still looks very good, and runs like a top w/ 180,000, and would like to hold on to it.
