What Part is this?

I was driving the 79 300td and it starting pulling hard to the right. When I got home I noticed the right front wheel was toed in much more than normal. I jacked it up and placed on the stands and noticed this piece is missing. I think it is the outer bushing from the upper control arm, but am not sure. The bolt and every thing is gone. I appreciate any suggestions and course of repair.

That's the torsion bar, (the one bushing on that, UCA, is visible in the background) the end may be rusted away, there is a repair guide here somewhere, try a search.

There are a number of ways to fix that.
Replace the whole sway bar.
Drill and tap in a bolt.
replace the end with a replacement piece with bushings, has to be welded on.

there were three HP ratings on the OM616...

1) Not much power
2) Even less power
3) Not nearly enough power!! 240D w/auto

Anyone that thinks a 240D is slow drives too fast.

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works
