Hi everyone, am new to the club and was wondering if anyone could advise on where I might be able to purchase rear spring top locating mounting brackets for a 1991 300GE 463 chasis.  Cheers Mark

Welcome to GWOA Marky.  Just one of the sources of G information.

Its always worth asking for Owners Association discount, especially from MB.  There is also a deal with Insurance worth checking out when you need it.

Top locating plate is A460 320 20 78 and not handed... about £115 plus vat currently at MB

The £55 one Mr Wales states is probably the top rear shock mount that sits in front of the tube... or it was a good while since it was bought!

There is a guy on GWR wih one for sale in Ireland tha the will post for a nice saving if its just one you need

Correct, didn't read the question properly, plus it's the piece of the chassis that you might reasonably expect to fail over time
