Drive Shaft Center bearing

I have 1998 Slk200 that was imported to US. I need to replace the Center drive shaft bearing and housing. I have not been able to find this part in US. Part dealers can not find any parts for 200, they keep telling me to use the 230 parts while some are interchangeable the center bearing and housing are not. The center bearing for the 230 has an ID of 1.181 Inches, the bearing for the 200 has a ID of .985 inches. Can anyone help me locate the parts for The SLK200? Weather is improving in Indiana and would like to start driving the SLK.

There are a couple of web based suppliers in the US.

@jbanks15 will list them off the top of his head.
