The steering damper on your Mercedes is a small shock attached to the steering linkage that absorbs inconsistencies in the road that may affect the steering linkage. Things like potholes and dips in the road can cause the tires to wobble or veer quickly in one direction or another. These movements of the wheels can travel through the steering linkage all the way to the steering wheel. However, on your Mercedes, the steering damper absorbs these movements to set the tires back on track without the driver feeling a thing. Over time the damper will wear out just like any other shock absorber. When this happens, the driver will feel the steering wheel jerk from the road and even uncontrollable steering jerk could happen in extreme conditions, and the steering damper must be replaced to stabilize the steering linkage.

  • Bilstein is a premier manufacturer of suspension components, manufacturing automotive shocks, struts, and damping products for more nearly a century.
    Whether your car is older with the traditional hydraulic shocks or newer with an electronically controlled suspension with shock absorbers, Bilstein offers replacement shocks to fit your car. The old bounce test worked on traditional shocks back in the ‘80s and earlier but modern suspension systems even when worn out will not bounce much when you push down on the fender. But if your car has lost that precise feel when cornering or doesn’t absorb road imperfections well anymore then it’s time to get your shock absorbers checked and replaced. The Bilstein shock absorbers are built to bolt right in to your factory mount locations and offer all the latest technologies available to fit your specific model.
