I had flex disks changed when I had front seal leak repaired on my 72, but they didn't provide break down of labor.
However, on my 85 300D which is similar, I had front flex disk changed - 1 hr charged. At a different shop, the hanger bearing and support - 2 hrs.
Don't now what you would pay down there, but having experienced shop do it might be worthwhile. I keep telling myself that, but still end up mostly DIY.
That mid shaft bearing got rid of vibration on the 300D.
The front flex disk was done after engine had been R&Red. Car was vibrating. Disk didn't show any cracking, but had likely been put back on in a different position. Somehow that threw things out of balance.
Good luck with it. It's a lousy place to work!
