W123 TD question

Has anyone here successfully used the regular 300D rear sub frame mounts on a TD? Some say that they look exactly the same but could be of a harder compound for the wagon. I would like to spend the $70 vs. the $250 each!

I am just trying to see if anyone has done this and were happy with the decision.

Thanks

Thanks orzsean, you know almost 200 people have looked at this and quite a few on another forum, and I have to say I am a little surprised that nobody has at least tried it to save cash.

Though I may have been incorrect about my statement of $250 each, I think that it may be a kit for $250 for both sides. That would make more sense but a $180 difference for a wagon seems odd even if the compound is slightly harder. Supply and demand I guess. If I had a parts car that had a good rear subframe bushing I'd swap them just to see, unfortunately I don't.

Thanks for the reply, you were the first to reply on this question on either forum.
