Rebuilding 320 front suspension - Looking for info
« on: September 07, 2014, 08:06:55 PM »
My recent test drives have shown me areas that need to be worked on. There is a good bit of play in the lower joint on the front right wheel. I would like to rebuild the whole right side. Are there parts available or do I get them machined?

I see other 320 cars being restored in Europe. I can't see to find where they are getting the parts. I have tried contacting them.

I think we need to have an additional section for parts resources, with full contact details. I know some of the names listed, but not all, and over the years, I have lost the contact details. Some have emails, some only phone or fax, some will not supply outside of Germany, some won't even respond if you don't speak their native language. All of these things are important to know if you don't get a response.

I still have the vendor list. It's old and needs updating bit probably 80% is accurate. Stephen

I left a email for the parts link but no reply yet. I listed the parts in German as they appeared on the site. All I can do is hope to get a response.

I looked up some of the others. I will start sending them emails.
