Research on Struts for Mercedes GL450
Mercedes Benz struts are integral to your vehicle's suspension and handling. The struts, though often confused for shocks, are designed to hold up the coil spring that cushions the car's ride. Over time, the bumps in the road can take a toll on the strut assembly of a vehicle, which is why most mechanics recommend replacing the struts every 50,000 miles. Doing so will ensure that your car continues to handle well and drive smoothly.
What are the Struts on a Car?
The struts on a car are actually the central component of the strut assembly. These hold up the car at its natural height but allow for movement in response to jolts. Checking for faulty or worn shocks is as easy as putting pressure onto each corner of your Mercedes GL450. The vehicle is equipped with struts only in the front, so push down on the front driver's side and watch for excessive play in the vehicle. If it bounces too much, it's time for new struts. Another indication of the need for new struts is fluid on the driveway. This could indicate a leak in the strut. While driving, watch out for noises when going over bumps in the road, a ride that feels too bumpy, or too much body roll. For safety and handling, replace both front struts at the same time.
How Much Does it Cost to Replace Struts on a Car?
The cost of replacing the struts for a 2010 Mercedes GL450 will depend on your location. Generally, when dealing with the suspension system, it is best to replace both front struts at the same time, as the parts typically experience the same level of wear. The Mercedes strut replacement cost to replace both front struts will vary from $2649.00 to $2825.82, for a 2010 model. This is based on each strut assembly costing around $1170 and labor costs around $400 to $500 dollars. If you want to save money and do the repair yourself, you will need a special Mercedes strut tool, which is used to safely compress the coil spring for removal from the strut.
Getting the Best Deal
As a luxury vehicle, expect to pay more for all replacement parts on your Mercedes GL450, not just the struts, but there are ways to save money on this repair. The general rule of thumb for auto parts is that older vehicles have lower priced parts, but the GL450 was made for such a limited time in recent years, that there is no discernable difference in prices for the parts between the oldest and newest models, but you don't have to pay the price the mechanic charges for new struts on your Mercedes Benz GL450. First, do the job yourself, but only if you feel qualified. The spring coil can be dangerous, even with the proper tool, to hold it in place. The strut tool and a replacement GL450 front strut are just two of the many parts you can save on at PartsGeek.com.
