CLK350 2007
I was getting ready to change front struts...

My CLK-350 2007 has 120K miles and I recently changed the rear shocks because a squeaking noise, then decided to do the fronts. Today, I was doing a quick inspection, when checking the upper/lower control arms and sway bar bushings... then realized the bushings donít look very good - see pics. Do you guys think I should also change these components? Any experiences you may want to share?

Yep, looks like time for anti-sway bar bushings and control arms.
