If there is side to side play the end bushings have to be replaced (#19 in diagram). #19 includes the bracket and bushing for $80 per side, but you can buy the bushing alone #163 320 00 44 for $48 per side.

Then after you replace the end bushings then check for play in bushings #18. Those bushings are only sold as a kit for $94 per side. Pricey suckers aren't they.

autohausazDOTcom has the "sway bar bushing kit" for $22.62 (kit includes 4 rubber mounting bushings) - Part # 1633200044. Manufacturer name is listed as "OEM/Meyle". I am not sure whether these are of same quality as the ones available thru the MB dealer.
