Security and consistency are key focuses for Mercedes, a trusted vehicle dealer whose name is known for value. A stunning Mercedes has got an unbeatable powerhouse engine plus its supple suspension. Would it make sense to spend a hefty price for a beautiful, stylish luxury car, if you plan to cut corners on new OEM or aftermarket parts and components? To keep the style and elegance you selected with your Mercedes 380SL, it's critical to buy only the best names in new OEM car parts. High-status cars such as your plush Mercedes 380SL were made to be used with care and also maintained well. Your Mercedes was put together with quality and craftsmanship; it deserves new OEM parts of a similar top level of quality. Mercedes 380SL Shocks behave as strong springs which look similar to pistons, passing fluid from a main chamber to a secondary chamber which softens jolts and jars as the vehicle moves. Quality Mercedes 380SL Shocks dampen motion from bumps in the road to offer a steadier ride. Solid Mercedes 380SL Shocks provide additional suspension stability and increase the maneuverability of the car or truck. Your car is special because it has great performance and terrific style, so to keep it going in top condition you want the acme in high-quality parts and accessories. Preserve your car's systems by purchasing the most reliable quality components. We respect your love for your Mercedes, that's why all we sell are excellent parts. Because you refused to consider something less than a Mercedes when you purchased your car or truck, why settle for anything less than the best parts and service? If there are any questions about our accessories, our customer service team members are available during business hours - just our regular top-notch commitment to the customer!

Research on Shocks for Mercedes 380SL

Your Mercedes 380SL shocks should keep your car from bouncing up and down over and over when you travel over bumps. Actually, your shocks and struts have multiple purposes. They deliver a great ride, plus give more stability and handling. Shocks in good condition affect your stopping distance when you apply the brakes quickly and contribute to the overall safety of your car. Did you know that slamming on the brakes when traveling a speed of 70 mph on bad shocks can increase your stopping distance by more than twenty feet? That can make a big difference on those close calls.

When Do I Replace Them?

I am curious as to when I should replace my stock shocks? The answer to this question is dependent on a couple of factors. How many miles are on your car, the condition of the roads you frequent, and how you drive your vehicle can help you determine when to do your shock absorber replacement. A sign that your shocks are wearing out and you need some new ones 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 will build upon the shock absorber itself. A reasonable amount of dirt is normal on the shock but not a layer of grease and grime. They probably need to be replaced.

What is My Best Choice?

When it is time to get some replacement shocks for the front of your car or some rear shock absorbers you definitely have some options. You can choose to use the same brand shocks that came with your Mercedes or another possible idea is aftermarket shocks. Aftermarket shocks can be an integral part of an improved suspension system that will help your entire vehicle feel and drive differently. Often these aftermarket options have the design problems worked out already. You can find some shocks that give a stiff and sporty driving feel or another shock that will allow you to glide over the worse bumps and dips in the road. Depending on your choice you will experience less rocking, pitching, and dipping when you drive. With all these options, it really is just a matter of your preference. Often a Mercedes forum can give you suggestions that will help you to decide.

The Cost for That Great Ride

It is recommended that shocks be changed in pairs. Once again, there are some great aftermarket options. If you decide to let a local service shop do the work it will cost in excess of $500-$900 for the front two shocks. You bought a great car. It makes sense to fix it right with the right parts. Whichever shock you decide to install on your Mercedes SL, you are likely to find the right parts for your shock replacement to minimize your whole strut and shock replacement cost at PartsGeek.com. We have a small overhead and that converts into savings for our customers.
