W110 front axle mounts question
My wife's W110 230 front axle mounts are shot (the ones in between the top of the axle and the chassis rails). I noted these W110 do not have that lateral strut (or guide rod, p/n 111 330 03 30) between the center rear of the front axle and the right chassis rail that is found on the 108/109/111/112/113 chassis. I also noted they have different subframe mounts. Does that mean these mounts are stiffer and take care of preventing lateral movments hence the absence of that guide rod?
I have good W108 type subframe mounts lying around. Does that mean that I'm going to end up with a lot of lateral movement if I fit them on the W110 in absence of that rod?
Thanks in advance for the help!
