Actually, I owe you double thanks as it was your original post
which pointed out that it was the contents not the labelling which mattered, and got me to researching all of this.
My thirty minutes of Googling saved me some $118 for the front axle set. Now if I could make $236 every hour of the working year, I could probably afford the MB box, too, not to mention retiring early!
Sadly, amateurs like me do not command the pricing power of the pros like yourself. I suspect most of the folks on this board find themselves in a like situation.
Thanks again for the lead.
