Quote from: UTn_boy on 25 May 2022, 08:02 PMThe tie rods on a 6.9 are not unique to the 6.9. The original part number has changed 4-5 times over the last 40+ years. The current recognized part number is the number you have already found...... 123-330-18-03, and is correct. This particular tie rod fits many models, which is why you see so many other references. The tie rods are still readily available from Mercedes. There is no need to buy an inferior part from Rock Auto. Naturally, the ones from Mercedes are a little more expensive, but they'll out last us. The ones from Rock Auto you'll be replacing within a year or two with normal to little usage. So pick your poison, I guess, but I can't recommend installing an inferior part on such an important and critical part/area of a car.
