Hi there
You will need to be more specific as to your model/year as well as what you mean by “rear arm”, do you mean trailing arm for rear suspension?

Right rear 1153506905
left rear 1153507305


steel, same one is used on W126 chassis.  Places that sell the used usually dont know how to pack them and horribly bend the backing plate, which is a real problem that takes a huge amount of time and expense to remove.  The rear backing plates are NLA so that makes it worse. That looks like what happened to the one you show on the pallet. The arm tends to rust out on the bottom beneath where the spring sits.

Model 1979 280S

Thanks for the information. It's just that in Russia it is very difficult to order such a new part, only the original for 2500 euros. Therefore, I am looking for alternative options.

If you need help purchasing a good used one in the USA and then having shipped to you in Russia let me know.

This company has some available.

If you buy from them insist it be packed for traveling a long way.
