Question Front control arm bushing compatibility question..???

HI All

Like most of you my 1997 C36 also suffer from front lower control arm bushing failure.

Now, I have search this forum and still have question.

I look at the original bushing it appeared that the busing it self doesn't have solid rubber between the center metal sleeve and the outer metal sleeve. Instead it has rubber piece that jointed at three spot like this

If I am not mistaken someone mentioned that CLK (w208)convertible uses solid rubber in the bushing is this true...???

I only have access to MB EPC and this is what I come up with
The repair kit for

up to 1997 W202 (including C36's) 202 330 00 75 and 170 330 00 75.
up to 2000 W202 (including C43's) 170 330 00 75
CLK320, CLK430 (including Cont model) 208 330 0075
CLK55 208 330 01 75

The control arm it self:
is W202 including (C36 and C43's) and CLK55 (w208) 170 330 01 07/170 330 02 07
while the W208-CLK320 and CLK430 (include convertible model) 202 330 52 07/202 330 51 07.

Looks like MB just put cross-fit parts on different model..?? which can be confusing sometimes.

Now could someone who really has access to MB parts verify which part number has solid rubber for the front C-arm bushing for W202 or W208 chassis...?

Thanks a bunch ..
