I think it is a DIY. I did mine for $25 for the seal kit and an afternoon. Worst part is getting it out of the car. The seals are easy to change. I did not take out the part that has the traveling balls under the advice of an experienced MB tech. Generally all the external seals are the only ones that need replacing. Also there is anadjustment that can take out the "slop" or compensate for wear and tighten up the slack. Well worth the effort.
I got too many cars!! Insurance eats me alive. Dave
