lower subframe replacement on 1979 450 sl
Thanks to MB DOC for his recent advice. I called my local dealer and have an appt. to have the lower subframe replaced. I also discovered that there was another safety recall on this make and model for a problem with the accelerator pedal cable linkage (which is also getting done). What I am curious about is the following: My local dealer tells me that while the subframe and attendent labor is free of charge, there is an installation kit that I will probably need to pay for (approx $100.00) and that the job may generate about another $300. in various bushing replacements. I have no problem with this if it is legit., but can't escape the feeling that I'm being had. Any additional advice out there?
