Mercedes Shocks and Struts Parts
Mercedes, the brand and company, is an elite member of the worldwide automobile industry; known for enhanced quality, class, and consistency, in designing some of the best vehicles and parts since their first automobile. Mercedes history is based upon years of training with quality driven motivations for creating vehicles, engine parts, suspension parts, and shocks and struts. The Mercedes brand has been known since early on for its technologically advanced shapes and designs, as well. Mercedes shocks and struts are a vital piece of every Mercedes vehicle. Mercedes shocks and struts both perform similar functions. They soften the movement in the suspension, in both directions. When the suspension creates a downward movement, this is called, jounce. When the suspension bounces back, this is called rebound. When shocks and struts become worn, jounce and rebound are not controlled at all and your Mercedes may drive out of control. The difference between Mercedes shocks and struts are very subtle. The shocks dampen motion while the struts are also used as a suspension component. Because of this, struts are normally built heavier and could be a bit more expensive than shocks. Shocks and struts also utilize hydraulic force for controlling movement. Most embody a tube packed with oil and some have pressurized gas to maintain oil pressure. There are ways to diagnose issues or symptoms of malfunction with struts and shocks. If there is oil leaking out of the shock or strut, replacing it is essential, but this is not fully understood my many drivers. If there is just a little bit of oil close to the top of a shock or strut, this is normal. This does not specify a need for replacement, except if there are other issues that are noticeable. When the whole piece is wet or if oil is dripping, then new replacements are necessary. FCP Euro carries a wide variety of these Mercedes shocks and struts, including large inventory of general Mercedes timing products and parts.

The lower end of the Mercedes shocks and struts are attached to the suspension. The upper end is more often than not linked to the frame and body through a shaft. This shaft is attached to a piston containing valves and is the epicenter of the shock absorber. Shocks and struts can also actually break and need immediate fixing. This is more widespread in aftermarket replacements than in original equipment (OE) parts. That being said, using aftermarket shocks could invite early unwanted problems for any Mercedes. Unnecessary bouncing while driving is also an indicator of worn out Mercedes struts and shocks. Always be attentive to ensure the struts and shocks wear out steadily and at a normal pace.
