W108 King pin parts

Hey All,

I have a question regarding kingpin rebushing parts for a 108.

Under kingpin parts kits they list these 2:

I'm confused.

The top kit appears to do the whole job. The lower kit appears to only repair the lower/outer kingpin, yet the pictures indicate that the kits have no common parts...

Help?

1. Please add your car model/yr to your sig so we can help better
2. Find and use the russian EPC so you can see where parts go and their PN's. (see sticky's for newbies)
3. Both parts you list are used, one is the kingpin, the other the lower clamp. Probably best to replace both. You will need to ream the new bushings after they are installed.

Thanks for the pic, that's a big help.
I've never had any success with the Russian site, and it now appears to be offline?

I have a 71 W108 3.5. I'll put in in my profile as you suggest

Thanks.
