Poking around on the internet can dig up some good stuff. Not just porn.

I found a company, Specialty Products Company

Specialty Products Company - SPC Alignment

Who, if they see enough interest, will make an alternative to the K-Mac eccentric bushings we all need, but don't want to afford. This is my e-mail exchange with Brad (start at the bottom):


You would probably be able to fabricate something that is similar to get the job done. The kit also includes a tool to make on the car adjustments in the rear significantly easier. You could see a picture of the kit if you type in pn 75980 in the part number search.

Brad,

Would a clever soul, someone that builds machinery for 30 years be able to fabricate a press fixture to extract the bushings? $27 is a whole lot more palatable for us!

Thanks for taking your time with me.

Max,

That does sound somewhat high. Our rear bushings set for your car retails at $138.55 per side, but that does not include the extraction tool which is another 91.03 for the sleeves that work with a ball joint press.

The K-Mac kits are $400 per set. Most of us consider this a bit high. What are your thoughts on that aspect? I do not know what your pricing structure is.

Max,

Please do that. The more requests we get, the more willing our Engineering team will be willing to look into the issue. Also, what is currently wrong with the K-mac kits that you don't want to use them?

Brad,

Thanks for your response. I’m going to ask members of crossfireforum.org, slkworld.org and benzworld.org to put in requests to you also to show how much interest there is for a front eccentric bushing for our cars.
*
I think there may be a new income line for your company.
*
Hopefully, you’ll hear more about this need and I’ll be hearing from you?
*
Thanks again,
*
Respectfully, Max Cichon

Max,

I'm sorry, but we don't currently offer anything for adjusting the front camber on your crossfire. We do offer some eccentric bushings for the rear suspension on your vehicle. I will get your request entered into our system and have our engineering team look into it.

You can make a "New Product Request" on their website, or call them in Colorado. The gent I spoke with was very nice and actually requested that I spread the word here and on the other MB-related forums.

Tell everyone you know, please? I'll post this same information on SLKWorld, Benzworld etc.
