w140 steering box ??

97 w140 coupe. Put car on lift and confirmed steering box is cause of play in wheel. It has 80 k on it. Would it be wiser to purchase a new box and install it myself or take it to shop and have to old one adjusted/rebuilt. My concern is if wear has occured can adjustment really bring it back to orignal tolerances.

It looks to me that new box is about same cost as shop labor to Repair old box. How difficult a job is it to remove old box. Newbie on MB, but old timer on Jags. Rebushed and replaced a few xj40 racks.
