The Mercedes Benz 280 Shock Absorber is a part of your vehicle's suspension system. It absorbs and dampens the vibrations caused when your vehicle rides over uneven roads. The shock absorber is essentially a linear dash-pot that includes a hydraulic cylinder that incorporates a piston that slides up and down within the hydraulic chamber. The cylinder is filled with a hydraulic gas or fluid. The shock absorber provides the requisite resistance to the movement of the suspension. The amount of resistance depends on the speed of the suspension movement: the higher the speed, the greater the resistance exerted by the shock absorber. The shock absorbs the kinetic energy generated by the shock spring and converts it into heat energy. This heat gets dissipated in the hydraulic fluid. The resistance of fluid flow in the cylinder is caused by the orifices in the piston and the check-valves that slow down the piston movement, thereby providing the required dampening effect. Based on their construction, shock absorbers are classified as mono-tube and twin-tube shocks. Twin-tube shocks consist of two nested tubes and a single piston, while mono-tube shocks have a single cylinder and two working pistons. Hydraulic fluid leaks and uneven tire wear are possible indicators of failing shock absorbers. If your shock absorber is damaged, you will sense a difficulty in negotiating turns and riding over bumps.
