Research on Shock Absorber for Mercedes 380SL

How soon you need to change your Mercedes SL380 shock absorbers can be determined by your driving habits. How much you push your vehicle over bumpy or uneven terrain can influence when your shock absorbers need to be replaced. A common sign that one or more of your shock absorbers is going bad is that they are visibly leaking. The fluid can begin to come out of a damaged seal in the piston of the shock. This leaking fluid can cause an abnormal amount of road grime to build up on the shock absorber that is easy to see by inspecting your shock. Sometimes you can experience your vehicle shift back and forth in moderate crosswinds because your shock absorbers are worn out or it is leaning more than usual going around a large curve. These are all indications that it may be time to check your shock absorbers. As a rule, it is recommended to start this shock inspection process after the shock absorbers have been on this sports luxury vehicle for 40,000 miles or when you notice one of these symptoms.

Suspension Parts

On any vehicle, the shocks, struts, and the springs are an important part of the suspension. They function together. They are primarily responsible for keeping your vehicle from bouncing when you travel over bumps. However, they also serve other purposes. If you need some new shock absorbers you won't experience that sporty and stiff feel you have come to expect from your 380SL. You won't have that strong tight handling you want in your Mercedes. New shock absorbers are also a safety item on your car, truck, or SUV. They affect every moment of handling of your vehicle and can reduce your stopping distance when you slam on the brakes.

Aftermarket Options?

You don't necessarily have to put the same brand shock on your car as the one that came with it. You can make the choice to use another brand of shocks. It is surprising, many aftermarket shock absorbers can be better than the originals. They have put a focus on eliminating the design flaws and this can give you a better ride and longer life on your new shocks. Different shocks adapt to the handling requirements of your car giving you improved stability. With all these options just decide which ones you prefer. Don't hesitate to inquire on some forums as to which aftermarket shocks others are replacing their old Mercedes SL shock absorbers with.

Ride Safe and Smooth

If you decide to fix your shocks absorbers in a local shop you will spend more than $500. This is for two rear shock absorbers since they should be replaced in pairs. With a little extra time, you can watch some excellent online videos to familiarize yourself with the process. You will see that you can complete the replacement and save some money.

The product was exactly what I was expecting . I had some difficulty finding the top nuts and there seamed to be no info on the web sites I checked. They are behind the rear seat side panels, on the drivers side you must remove the latch for the convertible top. No need for any coil tools the shocks go straight in after proper jacking with the car on jack stands. - 1983 380 SL
