You were involved in an accident with your Mercedes Benz where you hit a wall on the freeway. It was a rainy day and you were merging onto the freeway when you hydroplaned and lost control of the car. You spun a couple of times before you ended up stopped by a wall. Your Mercedes took the worst of the damage and now you will need to replace many parts. One of the parts you will need to get is the Mercedes Benz front control arms. Since you are not sure what a Mercedes Control arm is we will help you get as informed as you need to be. We will find out what a control arm is and what it does as well as types of replacements you can get.

A Mercedes Benz control arm is an integral part of your vehicle’s suspension system. Their function is to allow the up and down movement of your suspension while holding everything else firmly in place. This includes the knuckles, spindles, and axles. Your Mercedes Benz control arm set will come with ball joints or rubber bushings mounted to them. These allow the control arm to rotate up and down without getting tied up. The most common design of a control arm is usually referred to as double wishbone due to its shape of looking like a wishbone, but can also be referred to as A-frames or A-arms. They consist of an upper and lower arm.

The type of Mercedes Control arm will be dependent on what kind of strut assembly is used in your Mercedes Benz. So if your Mercedes has a Macpherson strut in either the front or rear suspension, only front lower control arms will be used. The strut, in this case, replaces the upper control arm. If your Mercedes has a solid axle in the rear any type of control arms can be used to connect the rear axle to the frame. Usually though, there are three or four control arms that have rubber bushings. In this case, this type of Mercedes Benz Control arm is referred to as trailing arms or rear trailing arms.

Your Mercedes Benz Control arm can be made of three different types of materials.

You can have stamped steel Mercedes control arms. This is one of the oldest versions of control arms due to the cheap cost of making them. Stamped steel control arms would hold coil springs in place and was an attachment point for shocks and sway bars. The downside of having these kinds of control arms is rust.

Another type of Mercedes control arms are cast iron ones. These are more popular in modern vehicles, especially on SUV’s and trucks. They are often wishbone shaped with bushings on the inside and ball joint on the outside. They are popular because they are very strong and can sustain rough environments much better than stamped steel ones.

The last type of Mercedes Benz control arm is the cast aluminum one. While not as strong as cast iron ones they are strong and very light which is an advantage. Now since it is aluminum it will not corrode like the stamped steel ones but they can be more susceptible to damage such as bending and cracking.
