    hi im looking for a company to buy a two set of front wishbone bushes
    i have tried eurocarparts and they dont do them i just want a good price for them

    i also need a full drag link for a w202 also at best price

    all these parts are for a c240 v6 w202

    so far the prices i have got are all over the place over a hundred pounds in a difference and no maker mark to check the make

    any help would be good

    The poly one's are split in two, so are much easier to fit. Here is the link, they don't show them on the website but they do them for sure. Give them a call mate

    When I replaced my wishbone bushes on my C43 I bought 2 genuine bush kits from Nic at EuroMerc, be warned they are not easy to do, and make sure that you take note of the orientation of one of the bushes as this sets your Camber or Castor (can,t remember which) as the hole for the bolt in the bush is not central. For info one of the bushes in the lower wishbone is split in two anyway from MB and is just as hard to fit, due to the way it is constructed, be warned that most people recommend the replacement of the complete lower arm due to the labour expense of replacing them.
    Euros use to do the bush kits have you actually spoken to them? Or is it just from their website? I had a drag Link fitted at the same time which was sourced from Euros.
    If you look on e-bay you can buy both the bush kits and drag links, though i can,t vouch for the quality of them.

    Hi,
    Just looked at the link for the poly bushes, and I,m sure that's a company I sent an e-mail to at some point and they "said" they only did them for the 203 not the 202.
    But the web site says they have them for the CLK, which are the same for the 202.

    I spoke to them in person at RS National Day last month Andy. They do a complete front wishbone kit for a W202, even though it is not listed on their website ;)
