Another axle question

Hi,
i have ordered few parts from rock auto as they seem to ship to canada directly and deal in canadian dollars and they also have the axles i am looking for my 1972 250C.

What they provide is the length of the axles and off course i can't measure mine as they are not removed yet. seems to be two sizes.
How can i determine how many splines, what length do i need for mine?

by the way 2 bucks for an oil filter is insane, i bought my last one here for 17 bucks, do i feel shafted everytime i buy parts in canada?!??!?!

Thank you.

here is the doc

No one?

I have received response from partsgeek that based on the OEM part number 107 350 43 10, i need to get the first one on this list:
71 1971 Mercedes 250C Axle Assembly - Driveshaft & Axle - A1 Cardone, First Equipment Quality, GKN Drivetech, SurTrack, Rear Left, Rear Right - PartsGeek

According to the manual, there should be mark of R and L for right and left, partsgeek recommend to buy the two of the same.

Does it really matter if it is right and left or both are the same?
Thank you.

I put a pair of the same part # surtrack axles in my 1980 240D, both sides are the same.

Some have posted on this and other forums recommending switching the axles side to side when just rebooting so they would wear in a different spot. You couldn't do that if they were "handed".

You want the shorter ones, I was told the longer axles fit the W116 S class, maybe also the W126. Don
