116 and 126 Chassis Front Steering Tie Rod Replacement Kit

S Class Sedans and SEC Coupes 1973 to 1991 - Except 6.9

We are now offering a kit for almost all 116 and 126 chassis with 2 new tie rods and instructions (does not work on 6.9). Kit contains right and left tie rod assemblies as shown. We have found if you discover one or more loose tie rod ball joints, it is always better to replace both rod assemblies at the same time. Entire assemblies are about the same price as two individual ball joints. If you go to the trouble to replace only one side - do both! Often if one is worn the other is not far behind. Note: Plan to have a front end alignment check done after replacement. This can be done at any good tire or front end alignment shop.
