    Rear Camber Link

    I am replacing the rear suspension links on my 1992 500E. I purchased a Lemforder camber link (Part # 210-350-34-06) and ran into a problem with the diameter of the bushing on the end that attaches to the axle hub knuckle. The original arm has a sleeve that is attached to the arm and slides into the attachment point on the hub knuckle. The Lemforder replacement did not come with the sleeve attached and the sleeve on the original arm is too large to be pressed into the bushing since the diameter is different. I am wondering if the Lemforder arm uses a bolt that is larger and the original sleeve is no longer used. Any ideas? Pictures are attached. Thanks.

    ffinn: Trying to recall my experience when I did this job a number of months ago. Did you purchase new hardware or plan to reuse old ? I used new hardware that I believe are now all XZN bolts that did not need a sleeve.

    Regards,

    I did not purchase new hardware, but I am thinking this is the solution. I will see if I can order new hardware tomorrow. Thanks for the input.

    ffin: You'll need an XZN (AKA triple square) metric bit that I bought on Amazon. Could not find at the auto parts stores or Harbor Freight. I forget the size but I bought an inexpensive 3/8 inch drive set that included the normal metric sizes.
    Don't forget when tightening the fasteners the drive axle needs to be parallel to the ground.

    I just refreshed the entire rear end on my 500E. Here is what you need:

    Hardware Kit: 210-350-45-06. RMEuropean.com had this the cheapest.

    Tool: A 12mm Triple Square Serrated Stubby. I bought this off Amazon as it was the best value:
