new idler arm kit - has play.

got few new things for front suspension - new UCA's, new tie rods and idler arm kit - once i installed it - i discovered that new idler arm bushings still have play in it. local mb mechanic did warn me to watch out for "cheap" ebay suspension parts. f..k. do you guys get oem mercedes parts? i think it's $75 instead of $11 of ebay.

Dude, I think you've gone off the deep end.

An idler arm repair kit is only $17.

Please do not buy anymore parts off e-bay.

New Idler Arm repair kits can go bad very fast if not installed correct (Improper torque) Or it could just be Horse**** parts
