Drag link was not too bad - just over $100 from memory. Not a cheap as a regular W116, but could have been worse.

Here is the banana shaped drag link.

I actually thought the boxes were different but I could be wrong...

What's the difference in the drag links?

Slightly heavier duty, but I wouldn't say it was significant looking at it.

Craig and Mark, the 6.9 drag link has completely different dimensions length wise, and the welded on bracket has been re-located. $100.00 ? Cheap at that price, normally it is much higher than that. One could even try OZ price for "that surprise", and I have also found that after market suppliers hardly ever stock the 6.9 item. I personally have resolved to having mine re-built, but the cost is well in excess of $100.00. Regards Styria

To be exact, it was $90.95 plus freight, but I bought a few items so the freight was not significant.
