1981 300TD Needing Front Suspension Work

Hello I am new to Peach parts. I was wondering if there was anyone in the Augusta, GA area who knows of a good shop with reasonable prices for front end suspension work. Ball joints, bushings, control arms, shocks... I also have an oil leak, which I would like to diagnose and have fixed.

I would consider someone looking for a side job to do the work as well.

Mike

The Atlanta area is a hot bed for good MB shops. You might check the Good Shops section of this forum and also post this in the Diesel Discussion forum.

This forum was started in conjunction with a new independent MB shop in the Atlanta area over 11 years ago, so there is lots of Atlanta patronage here.

Best of luck with it,
Larry

There's a list of good shops here

Good MB Shops - PeachParts Mercedes ShopForum

I don't know if that helps though...

Welcome to the forum.

Best thing you can do is to drive the 80 miles down to Soperton and hook up with "Engatwork", a moderator on this forum.

He'll do a perfect job and it won't cost a small fortune (although an entire front end is not exactly a low budget repair).
