Research on Shock Absorber for Mercedes S500

How do Mercedes SL500 shock absorbers work in my car?

Your Mercedes SL500 shock absorbers have two essential jobs. They control the movement of your car's suspension and springs by damping the impact of road bumps and vehicle vibrations, and they make sure that your tires are always in contact with the road. Tire contact with the road is what allows you to maintain movement control and braking ability. (You can't control an airborne car, no matter what you have seen on TV!)

How do they do this? When your car moves over a bump, for example, the springs in your suspension are compressed. The shock absorbers (either mounted to the side or inside the springs, depending on your car model) provide resistance when those springs start to decompress.

If you could see inside your Mercedes SL500 shock absorbers, you would see pistons that move up and down inside an oil filled tube in concert with the movement of your springs. Oil inside the piston is forced through microscopic holes and valves, and this provides the necessary resistance to the spring's movement. That resistance turns kinetic energy into heat. Your shock absorbers get warm, your wheels stay on the road, but most importantly, you stay in control of the car.

When do I need to replace my Mercedes SL500 shock absorbers?

Mercedes SL500 shock absorbers are built to handle a tough job with precision and reliability. However, they can and do wear out. Replacing them after 80,000 -100,000 miles is a smart idea (or 60,000 miles if you have been driving under extreme conditions).

Signs that you may need to replace your Mercedes SL500 shock absorbers include things like nosediving (your car's front end dives down to the road when you apply the brakes) or squats (your car's rear drops down as you accelerate).

Extreme bouncing while driving is another sign that your Mercedes SL500 shock absorbers need to be replaced, and leaks near your tires may be piston or hydraulic fluid from your shocks. A less common sign is one tire that is visibly lower than the rest, and it's not because the tire is flat.

Worn out shock absorbers don't just make driving a lot less enjoyable. If your car sways from side to side in good weather and is difficult to control, your Mercedes SL500 shock absorbers need to be replaced right now, before they start to affect your braking system as well. The increase in your stopping distance caused by bad shock absorbers will keep your ABS system from optimal performance.

If you notice any of these signs, replace your Mercedes SL500 shock absorbers immediately.

Is it expensive to replace my Mercedes SL500 shock absorbers?

Depending on where you take your car, the cost to replace your Mercedes SL500 shock absorbers could be anywhere from $545 to $875. Labor costs would be in the $245 to $310 dollar range. In most cases, a dealership will charge you more than an independent mechanic.
