A shock absorber, also known as a damper, is a mechanical device that is designed to dampen or reduce the amount of vibration and bounce in the suspension of a vehicle. In a Mercedes-Benz vehicle, shock absorbers are typically located at the four corners of the vehicle, one at each wheel. They work by converting the kinetic energy of the suspension’s movement into thermal energy, which is then dissipated as heat.

Shock absorbers play a crucial role in maintaining the stability, handling and safety of the vehicle. They help to keep the tires in contact with the road surface, and prevent excessive bouncing, swaying and body roll. They also play an important role in the vehicle’s ride comfort.

Mercedes-Benz uses different types of shock absorbers depending on the vehicle model, such as twin-tube, monotube and air suspension. They are typically made of durable materials such as steel or aluminum, and are designed to withstand the stresses of everyday driving. They are also a wear and tear item that may require replacement over time.
