I recently got the thrust arms, bolt kits, and sleeves for my W124. My question is, what the heck size and kind of bit to you use on those bolts. They almost look like torx heads, but with more "splines" also, that bolt doesn't look like it will fit inside that sleeve once that sleeve is pressed into the bushing???


Guess I need a little pro- help here


Thanks
Evan

They are called Serrated (hope a spelled it correctly)bits. I'm pretty sure it's a 10mm. Just go to a local tool shop they should have it.
As far as the second question I'm not really following you. Just make sure that the part that you are taking out matches the one you are putting in. Also, pay attention to bolt direction.

I think you will find you are talking about the torque
arm.
These 124 arms are referred to by so many diferent names,
depending on what part house you check, that the confusion is understandable.
I have the job from the CD ,35-111, at the site listed below.
I have added the names of each arm according to the CD manual for any other 124 owners sake.

Good job Arthur on the Illustration. Nobody ever knows what your talking about when you refer to any parts in the % link suspension.
