Aaah. I had the same thing, only worse on my 190e. The fix consisted of removing the spring, cleaning the metal well, making sure the spring mount was back in place, then welding 3/32" steel gussets in place on both sides, running a weld across the top (all with MIG), then zinc spraying and undercoating the works. I then put the spring back in. You couldn't tell I had repaired anything when it was done. I did it myself in my parents' driveway in about 3 hours. Any skilled body shop should be able to do the job for a LOT less than you were quoted. Shop around a bit.
