Your Mercedes Benz is your best driving car. You love its smooth feel on the road and how incredibly comfortable it is. But lately you have noticed the front part of your Mercedes Benz is dipping a little and the ride has been more prone to bumps on the road. You are not sure what this could be so you take it into the mechanic. Your mechanic tells you that you will need to get your Mercedes Benz strut assembly replaced. You want more of an explanation to this as you do not know what the struts do. So your mechanic, David, breaks it down for you.
David tells you that cars either come with shocks or struts but they perform very similar functions. Whether your car has shocks or struts depends on the needs of the car and what the manufacturer decides to use on your specific vehicle. Your Mercedes Benz struts are a part of the car’s suspension system that absorb compression to reduce heavy bouncing and give you that smooth feeling you are so used to when driving your Mercedes Benz. Your Mercedes Benz strut assembly will have five main tasks:
- Stabilize the suspension system: Mercedes Benz struts do this because they work like shock absorbers to stabilize the overall function of the suspension system. The struts work along with leaf springs, coil springs, and stabilizer bars to add increased tension and support to the suspension system.
- Maintain a stable ride: The Mercedes Benz strut assembly will help maintain control of the car ride by evenly distributing vehicle body weight while the car is being driven. Most likely, your Mercedes Benz will have 4 struts, two in the rear and two in the front. These four struts work together to maintain a controlled ride.
- Reduce frame stress: Frame stress is reduced on your Mercedes because the Mercedes Benz struts are absorbing much of the stress and impact while the car is being operated. Without the Mercedes Benz strut your car ride would be extremely bumpy and there could be damage to the frame.
- Reduce vehicle bounce: Since we don’t drive on flat roads free of bumps we need Mercedes Benz struts to apply various degrees of tension to the front and rear of the car to limit the bumpiness from the road.
- Contribute to proper wheel alignment: The Mercedes Benz struts will exert tension on its wheels to help keep them in proper position and from bouncing up and down or swaying to the sides, all things that will affect tire life.
