Well went to an alignment shop to get it aligned but they couldnt do the alignment said they needed the following

Rear Alignment was perfect.

1) Tie Rod had play? Is this possible...

2) Steering Damper Needs to be replaced its leaking

3) Camber off 1 Degree on right side. Can use camber bolts if I am correct.

The camber bolts isnt the biggest issue and the steering damper i know is fairly inexpensive but the tie rod assembly is about $270.00 !!!... Does anyone know if the C230 tie rod will fit? Because I can find those those assemblies for ~$110.00.

Anyway 270 is really a big purchase for me... do u think I just do the steering damper and camber I could get away with the tie rod having play?

They said its not the tie rod and but the tie rod itself (Drivers Side)... Do they sell only the driver side tie rod and not the whole asssembly anywhere?

Anyway thanks for your advice guys you guys are most helpful1

I do a little of the easy stuff... so i like to research as much as possible so i don't screw up.

The alignment readins were 1.5 left and 0.5 right... So about a 1 degree off... I read somewhere that the bolts are possible to do up to 1 degree. But .6 degree is the max?

Thanks for replying quickly though =) I hope I can post the restults
