A car's performance is the culmination of many factors including high quality parts.

An essential element of many car suspension designs, your Control Arm is somewhat flat, three-sided and mounts to the vehicle chassis and your wheel. If a Control Arm fails, it is usually a good idea to get the other arm inspected, as it too may require maintenance.

Research on Control Arm for Mercedes SL500

Each control arm links the suspension and steering with the frame of your car. It is connected to the wheels via a ball joint, and to the chassis by bushings. These enable the suspension to flex and pivot as you steer or drive over uneven roads. As you probably guessed, any problem with the control arm or its ball joints and bushings will make it hard to drive. There are a few symptoms that can serve as warnings before there are any safety hazards. A bad control arm should be replaced as quickly as possible to avoid any trouble, and to restore the normal function of your car's suspension.

Symptoms of Impending Mercedes SL500 Control Arm Failure

Wheel shimmy is one of the first signs that a control arm is getting loose. A common reason is that the ball joints and bushings are wearing out. Vibrations in the steering wheel are not normal and mean there is either a problem with the control arm or something else. A bad control arm can also throw of the steering alignment. Your car might start to pull to one side or the other when driving, even if you are trying hard to go straight. Any shift in alignment should therefore be checked out. It's also common to hear noise from a worn control arm or one of its attachments. Clunking and knocking mean that there is excessive play or something is loose. These will get louder and louder until something in the suspension breaks and you have no control over the car.

What Is a Lower Control Arm on a Car?

The front of your vehicle has two control arms on each side. There is a lower arm and an upper control arm. The control arms form a shape that looks like the letter A.

Is the Ball Joint Connected to the Control Arm?

The ball joints connect each control arm to the steering system. It is a ball and socket joint that supports steering and allows the suspension to move at the same time. Failure of the ball joint can cause the suspension to collapse. If that were to happen, you would lose control of the car, unless you had Mercedes SL500 control arm replacement to remedy a developing problem.

Cost of Replacing the SL500 Control Arm

The total cost of control arm replacement is highly variable. Aside from what a mechanic charge for labor, and local taxes, there are parts supplier prices to consider. In general, you can spend between $85 and $200 for a 2006 Mercedes Benz control arm. If you go for a pair or a set of parts, the cost can be even higher. However, you are not limited to spending top dollar at a brick and mortar store.
