Mercedes Steering & Suspension: Making your Mercedes Benz work
Springs:The springs used on today’s cars and trucks are built in a variety of types, shapes, sizes and rates. The most common types include coil springs, leaf springs and torsion bars. These are used in sets of four for each vehicle or they may be paired off in varied groupings. Having a Mercedes Benz expert who knows when to use which spring is vital to the care of your car.
Shock Absorbers and Strut Assemblies: There seems to be much doubt over the use of struts and shocks. A shock absorber is not part of the steering but controls up and down movement of the suspension. The shock absorbers permit a soft ride over small bumps and provide firm control over spring action on large bumps.
The strut assembly takes the place of the upper control arm, front shock absorber and ball joint. This builds up handling and response. It also keeps the front end aligned. In most cases, it also contains the front coil springs so care must be taken when you are replacing them.
Auto suspension systems are a crucial part of your car’s driving features, affecting comfort, safety, stability and braking. Each car has a unique set of shock requirements. That’s why it’s vital you use the OE brand when changing shocks or struts on your car.
