Question about Cars & Trucks
I am not an Mercedes expert, but if your rear axle is not solid from one side to the other, you have one of a number of hinged floating rear axles. These may simply require an alignment, just as the front end requires.
With excess wear on the inside track of the tires, the inside of the tire is pitched down lower than the outside edge. Most rear tires are set to run level or slightly pitched to improve handling.
If your rear assembly is not adjustable, the connecting bushings are worn on the linked suspension or the rear axle bearings have excess clearance.
Go somewhere to have a 4 wheel alignment, not to be confused with 4 wheel drive.
Please rate my info.

It should not be a problem as long as he aligns the tires in a four wheel alinement it will be fine, on trucks some axles stick out more on one side than they do the other so don't worry about it, if he's any good he can still align them it's just more work for him.

SOURCE: scrubbing noise from rear
check the sheet metal backing plate just behind the brake rotors, it may be bent and touching when wheel is turned, this is the common problem for this noise.
