Question Will 190e 2.6 "Sport Suspension" Control Arms, fit in a standard 2.3?

It's time for new ball joints and my control arm bushings look pretty cracked up as well, so I'm thinking of replacing the entire control arm assemblies on my car.

I've heard of people replacing the standard control arm bushings with sportline bushings. Can I use the complete control arm assemblies that are for 2.6 190e's with "Sport Suspension" in my 1991 190e 2.3?

Thanks for the reply M.B.DOC!

Other than the difference in the appearance of the rear bushing, I was mainly concerned that there would be geometry differences, (to compensate for the slightly lower ride height of the Sportline models) that would not work correctly on my otherwise stock suspension.

replacing ball joints on my 1987 2.3 16

Does anyone know if I can replace the control arms with bushings on my Cosworth with ones meant for the 190 Sportline? Are those different from the control arms and bushings for the regular 190's? Dealer price is 500 dollars so I am looking on eBay and saw some on there. Or should I just buy the ball joints and try to replace them alone?
