Need spring perch and coil spring

1860 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Galevin
My girlfriends 1999 clk320 needs a passenger front spring perch and coil spring. A search shows me she's not alone. Can someone point out a supplier that I can buy this from? I'm assuming there are no used ones around? Not sure if there is a rubber seal in the perch or not but would need that also. I found a mechanic who says he can weld that on. But he wants me to get the parts. Has anyone done this before? Just wondering how tough this job is and if it requires a qualified mercedes tech or just a good auto welder? Any help greatly appreciated.

Its an obvious flaw in design. These perchs look like they are made out of tin and it takes nothing for them to rust. Many others with the same car have had the same experience. The rest of the car has slight to moderate rust but nothing like this.
