Update for w124 late style lower control arms
I just wanted to share an awesome news with you. Thanks to 500eboard forum for this information.
The price for OEM mercedes late style control arms with integrated ball joint has dropped significantly. The part numbers are 1243303507 and 1243303407. This price drop has happened very recently and I purchased two from getmercedesparts.com for 185$ each.
This topic has been discussed before many times by forum members. Just for summary in case you didnít know, the later style LCA has non replaceable ball joint and if either bushings or ball joint fails, you have to replace the whole unit. The aftermarket parts for these late LCAs were offered mostly by Febi, TRW and some other brands for around 130$ but with much less quality. The original LCAs were around 400$ each in the past. Here in Canada dealer wanted 730$ each!
But now with this price change, you can get the originals with great price and be happy!
