My 200 had the G60 conversion done at the dealer when the car was young, 
before I owned it.  I had a tie rod end pull off and lost steering shortly after I 
bought the car ~75k.  The problem was that the dealer cross threaded the end, 
which allowed it to corroded internally and pulled off.  At that point I 
learned that my conversion was V8 parts, including the tie rod (Passenger side 
which had a bend to the shape).  I purchased the standard 200 complete tie rod 
and it fit fine.  The curve was engineered to fit around the V8 exhaust.  The 
old bad tie rod was rust free on the outside, but shot on the inside, (Adjuster 
nut frozen.) 

Jim at Blaufernugin was helpful in identifying the correct parts.
