I have a 1981 300SD w126 with overly sloppy steering (its excessive by spec.)
I have a TIGHT steering box out of a 1979 240D (w123)

These look like they MIGHT be interchangeable but possibly not exactly the same. Innards the same? Any ideas?

Part numbers on fastlane are different but....
Hello,
You will need to swap the drop arm to make it work, it may not be as *light* as the W126 box, but in my book, that is a bonus.
Hope that helps.
BTW, check ALL the other stuff before condemning the steering box, like the idler arm bushes etc.
