Some play in steering arm relay '62 W111

Hi all,

the other day I checked the play in the steering linkages and noted that the steering arm relay has some play on the lower part of the shaft. EPC doesn't show any bushing to be replaced there for the 111021 model (later models are different) but there is a repair kit for the W113 230 SL with a bushing which is a 111 part number (111 460 00 50). By running the number into EPC it also applies to the 111021.

I would like to know what is involved before ordering that repair kit: is there some machining required to fit what looks to be a brass bushing where there is none originally? If yes, is the machining required on the shaft or on the part welded in the firewall?
