(Andrew: 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300TD, white with blue interior) Plan A has been rejected by both the Chair of the Finance Committee and the Chair of the Social Committee aka COMHOMELANT aka SWMBO, so now I'm on Plan B. Plan A was to order the MB tie rod assembly from MB Northlake for $55 plus $10 shipping, and then swing by LKQ Knackers tonight after work and see if I could scrounge a good used tie rod assembly. Replace the used assembly with the new at a later date TBD. Plan B is to purchase two new tie rod ends from local Autoparts warehouse (Moog) for $90 and install those tonight after work. Plan C is to execute the first part of Plan B (get the new ends in hand), hold on to the receipt, execute Plan A on the sly (but pay an extra $10 for overnight shipping) and delay the installation until Saturday p.m. or later, and then return the Plan B parts on Monday. Confess my "modification of the plan" after I can show "Look honey, I saved us $15!".
