Mercedes 450SL Replacement Shock Absorber Information


Mercedes crafts vehicles that display the epitome of luxury and power wrapped in a dependable and stylish design. Protection and consistency are high on the list for Mercedes, a trusted auto company whose name is known for excellence. Luxurious cars such as your plush Mercedes 450SL are manufactured to be handled with care and attention and then regularly maintained. To maintain the value and appearance you bought with your Mercedes 450SL, it's crucial to buy only the very best brand name parts. Does it make any sense to spend a big check on a great, stylish luxury car, only to save pennies on new auto parts? Your fine Mercedes was created using the best quality and expertise; it should have new replacement parts of the same high level of quality. If you chose that high-performance car or truck to enjoy its excellent engine power and performance, insure that decision by installing outstanding new parts and accessories. Develop your car or truck's critical systems by buying only the ultimate in top-notch parts. Decent Mercedes 450SL Shock Absorbers reduce motion caused by bumps on the road to provide a more stable ride. Mercedes 450SL Shock Absorbers behave like firm spring coils which look similar to pistons, transferring fluid from a main chamber to a secondary chamber which softens jolts as the vehicle moves. Shock absorbers can be defined by two fundamental forms: spring shocks which rely on metal coil springs, and torsion shock absorbers which rely on a torsion spring. You no longer have to choose between your bankroll and durability when you get your accessories. Many times the most frustrating thing about restoring an older vehicle is looking for a dependable source for outstanding parts.

Research on Shock Absorber for Mercedes 450SL

One of the most beautiful new cars available from auto manufacturer Mercedes Benz is the Mercedes 450SL. This year's model features all of the luxury that you have come to expect from this quality producer of magnificent vehicles. Features like a 3.0-liter twin turbo engine with 362 horsepower, four-wheel disc and anti-lock brakes, a power sunroof, Bluetooth for ease of communications while traveling, a heated driver seat, a premium sound system and all of that wonderful new leather-covered steering wheel and interior gives this Mercedes both class and ultimate comfort for you as the driver and one lucky passenger. Anyone who owns a vehicle like this knows that all of its important operating systems must be inspected and maintained regularly, and the suspension system and its component Mercedes 450SL shocks will benefit from your attention to detail.

What is the job of the shock absorber?

The shock absorber in your shiny new Mercedes is responsible, along with the springs in your automobile, for keeping the vehicle from bouncing when you travel over bumps in the road. The shock absorbers fit into struts, which are connected to the chassis of the car, and the struts help to keep the roadster or convertible at the correct height above the ground and the wheels, as well as help with controlling the car's direction when you turn the steering wheel to travel right or left. After the shock absorbers and struts have been subjected to thousands of bounces as you drive, eventually they will lose their ability to control the bounciness of the vehicle, and at that point they are worn out and will need to be replaced with new shocks and struts.

What are some ways to determine if you need to replace your car's shocks?

The bottom line is: has your Mercedes become very bouncy when you drive over rough road? If so, a mechanic would certainly check out the shock absorbers to ensure that they are not worn out and are functioning as they should. If the shocks and struts are in need of replacement, you might also notice that your car's tires are wearing out unevenly, and this can provide another clue that the shock absorbers or struts might be to blame.

How much does it cost to get new shocks?

On a new 450SL, expect to pay approximately $245 to $313 for labor, and $268 to $1,510 for parts in order to have a mechanic at a Mercedes-Benz dealership or an independently owned auto repair shop replace both rear shock absorbers on your Mercedes. If you prefer to do the work yourself, you will find all types of quality Mercedes parts and tools available conveniently online. One top source that offers discount prices is PartsGeek.com, and those prices, along with fast shipping and a thirty-day return policy, is what keeps satisfied customers returning.

Reviewer: rear shocks

Ok I thought I could get away with monroes, why not, the oldest shock company. While they were better that the 20 year bilsteins, they didn't satisfy for very long. After a year, I went back to bilsteins.

Very Satisfied
Reviewer: front shocks

I bought front shocks to replace the 1 year old monroes. I kept reading on the message boards that bilsteins really are the best and do make a difference. Shocks aren't the area you want to economize on.
