This is a DIY job if you have medium skills and tools. I'd call Gary at BuyeuroParts.com (no affiliation) and he will know what parts you need. Take lots of photos during disassembly so you can put it back together again.
A shop should be able to do this in 5-7 hours (my guess) so you should be good in a weekend. That makes an expensive job into an interesting DIY that costs 20% of the shop.
US '87 560SEC with Euro headlights, clear markers, H&Rs, 18x8.5, ATE slotted rotors with semi-metallics, BergWerks FGS, 3.07 Limited Slip.
In progress - FrankenBenz SEC: GM LS6 5.7L engine with custom 4L60E 4-spd overdrive transmission, GM rack and pinion.
One of my goals with the FrankenBenz is to scare women and children, and to have Lexus drivers spill their latte.
