New Upper Control Arm Bushings
« on: June 11, 2019, 05:11:36 »
I have a complete set of four threaded bushings for the upper control arm - #120 333 (02,03) 48. These are brand new from Mercedes and fit most cars from the 50s and 60s including the W113. See picture. I am asking $10/ea or $40 for the set plus shipping. Mercedes sells these for $20.00/ea with the discount. Get them for half off!!!

Please PM me.

Thanks,

Wallace

I can see you have two with a groove and two without.  I am curious do you know the relevance for the groove?  Is it for greasing?

The groove is there to distinguish left from right. The parts are not the same, their dimensions differ

Thanks Hans. I noticed those grooves but had no idea what they were for. That makes sense as Mercedes seems to be good about marking items that are visually similar but yet are different. Left hand threaded nuts and sockets come to mind.

BTW, those are the ...03... parts. And these are now sold!

Thanks.
