Jhodg5ck,
Thanks for the reply.

Idler arm repair kit is what I am looking for-
I looked for idler arm repair kit on one of the links you provided and it said-
''Vehicle:1999, MERCEDES, SL500,
Idler Arm Repair Kit APA/URO PARTS W0133-1617089 $135.00 $84.86''
Not trying to catch you out but it mentions under brand name as you see 'URO'.
Now I am slightly more confused...
Regards
Darragh.

talk to him, he won't let you buy if you try, he'll recommend something else via email.

Gary is his name, let him know I sent you.

its not a fight, we re all talking from experience...

I have personally used them for several suspension components, and have not had problems with them, but Jonathan is also a well experienced member in here... so when he says he had problems, I believe him...

of course not all supplier make all of their parts equally, so it boils down to what exactly are you trying to replace...

OK, so Mum and Dad are just having a discussion then - Idler arm kit is what I want and since I can get the kit made by URO for €75 delivered as opposed to mercedes €135 plus VAT I was wondering if URO might have bushings as good as originals?

Thanks Bayhas/Jonathan

did you talk to Gary, see what he can work for you??

No, the Euro bushings are no where near as good as the originals.
