W 108 - bad left outer able bearing - fix or swap rear ends?

My 1967 250S is now amongst the living. There is a rhythmic sound that comes from the right rear axle about 10 inches in from the wheel. I suspect the bearing.

I have a 1968 280S parts car that I think has a quiet rear axle.

Thoughts?

axle bearing

On my 280S i had a loud clicking noise from the right rear wheel bearing rectified after a bearing replacement .
The availability or price of the bearing may help you decide to swap or replace the bearing .

I'm looking in the shop manual and it reference two mercedes tools needed - one of which is used to bang the axle out of the axle tube. Is this something that I can do or a basic mechanic can do, or are special Mercedes tools (and/or a press) required to do this?

thanks

I just recently finished that task on my 67 250s, getting the axles out is pretty easy. i used the drum flipped around with the lugs a bit loose. yanked on it, and it came right out. getting the bearing off the axle and installing the new one are the most challenging, but not impossible. I posted some pics as I met the challenge on here. Oil seal replacement

I'm curious as to why I would replace these two springs (which I will order today). Also, for my car it appears to be A 000 423 21 93 as the chassis break to the other part number is at chassis 040645 and I have 037497...

thanks
