WTB: trailing arm washers and nuts

Looking to source washers and nuts for trailing arm bushing replacement on an 02 LWB. They don't seem to be part of the drawings on various websites. Looking for dimensions, part numbers or even better if you have them to sell.

you can get these hardened bolts, nuts, washers at quality hardware store or ship chandlery if you can't find or want to pay for benz parts

Yes do that....and save, and buy a set of extras on the cheap just to have one of each

you can also use the washers to align the axle by having one more washer on one side vs other if needed.
This aligns the angle of track, it does not move the track side to side

ie, stacking two at number 40

What Mike said is a MB approved method by the way.

The method we used is not approved by MB but may be helpful and has worked...Cut the washer enough to fit over the washer over the screw and then tighten in. That way you do not need to take it all apart. It seems to have stayed put over the years even in some rough conditions. This is especially helpful if they can't get the alignment to stop pulling. Mostly needs washers on the passenger/right side as I recall.
