Naming convention

That's an interesting question. There was a thread which identified the particular arms as follows, with the MB name first and the Fastlane name following:

1. Thrust arm ---------------------> Thrust arm
2. Tie rod -------------------------> Control arm strut
3. Torque strut -------------------> Control Arm Stay
4. Camber strut ------------------> Camber strut
4. Spring Link ---------------------> Sway bar link

However the names and part numbers on the Fastlane ticket are as follows:

Tie rod ...............210-350-2153 (2753?)
Support Arm...... 210-350-3306
Camber Strut......210-350-3406
Support Arm.......210-350-3806

The tie rod part has one number on the plastic bag (210-350-2753) but has 210-350-2153 on the box enclosing the bag!

I did not get the sway bar link arm.

Here is a pic, with the 4 arms, I can only identify 2 of them. Maybe someone can ID all of them.

I think I'll wait until I do the front end before I get a 4 wheel alignment.
