Research on Shocks for Mercedes E300
How soon you need to change your Mercedes E300 shocks can be determined by your driving habits. How much you push your vehicle over bumpy or uneven terrain can influence when your shocks 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 that is easy to see by inspecting your shock. Sometimes you can experience your Mercedes moving in moderate crosswinds or leaning more than usual going around a large curve. These are all indications that it may be time to check your front shocks. Shocks and struts can be considered a safety item and should be inspected periodically.
All shocks work with the struts and the springs as an important part of your suspension. They function together. They are primarily responsible for keeping your vehicle from bouncing when you travel over bumps and give you a smooth ride. However, they also serve other purposes. If you need a shock replacement you won't experience the ride and stability that you have come to expect from your Mercedes. One added advantage you get by doing a shock replacement is you increase the safety of your vehicle. Your stopping distance is decreased when you have to apply the brakes quickly and therefore can contribute to the overall safety of you and the people in your car. Slamming on your brakes at 70 mph with worn out shock absorbers can cause you to travel 20 feet more before coming to a complete stop. This can be the difference that prevents an accident.

When it is time to change your shocks on your E300 you have some options. It is best to do your front shocks and front struts together.
