When you think Mercedes-Benz, you think of world-class excellence and precision engineering. This is true for every element of the Mercedes, from the sleek cabin design and features to the engine, steering, and suspension. If you are having trouble with your Mercedes’ suspension, it is always best to bring it to a local garage repair shop near you that you trust.
The suspension system on a vehicle is an important component to ensure a safe and smooth drive. The shock-absorbing elements such as springs and dampers help to absorb and soften the energy created by bumps and dips in the road, as well as make sure your tires maintain contact with the road. If one of the parts of this system gets worn down or breaks, it can impact the whole system and thus the vehicle itself.
The best way to avoid issues with your Mercedes-Benz’ suspension is to bring it in for routine maintenance. That way, a qualified technician can see if there are any minor problems with the suspension and get them fixed before they become bigger issues. If you are currently dealing with suspension problems with your Mercedes-Benz, don’t hesitate to bring it into Jesse’s Garage, your number one mechanic in Sarasota for fine European automobiles.
Mercedes-Benz is known for its patented five-member multi-link suspension system layouts at the rear of the vehicle, and almost all have fully independent suspensions. Many models of Mercedes also use a double-wishbone suspension in the front. This state-of-the-art system coupled with its stiff body structure provides a smooth and responsive ride that Mercedes owners know and love.
Depending on the model of Mercedes, your vehicle may use a double wishbone system at the front and a four-link suspension in the rear, or it could be 3-link front suspension and a five-link rear suspension. Both suspension systems work well for noise isolation and energy absorption in the event of an accident.
When speaking of the double-wishbone design on a Mercedes-Benz front suspension system, we mean a two-wishbone system where the first is mounted fairly high and the second is positioned low to improve the sturdiness in the design and optimize suspension geometry. This allows for precision steering response while driving and low noise and vibration, ultimately providing the driver with a smooth, enjoyable ride.
The multi-link independent rear suspension system that is used on almost all Mercedes-Benz models is all about evenly distributing the forces between the rear wheels. The most popular version is the five-link system since its design helps to ensure that the wheels continue to point straight throughout their vertical range and prevents unwanted rear-wheel steering effects. The sleek design of this system is one of the lightest suspension systems out there and also takes up less space than other traditional rear suspension models, allowing for maximum trunk capacity.
