Mercedes-Benz W204 Shock/Strut Failure Symptoms
How do you know it's time to replace your struts/shocks? There are many different symptoms ranging from just subtle hints, to your car basically shouting at you that it's time for the shocks to be replaced. Worn shocks and struts shouldn't be ignored as they pose safety concerns as well as place unnecessary wear on other components.
Some of the symptoms of a failing shocks and struts on your Mercedes-Benz W204 are:
- Uneven or unusual tire wear
- Front end diving hard under braking
- Rear end squatting under acceleration
- Vehicle lean when cornering
- Fluid leaking on the outside of the shocks
- Unstable at highway speeds
- Excessively bouncy ride
Shocks and struts normally last between 30,000 to 50,000 miles depending on the type of vehicle you drive and the quality of roads you drive on. You should be looking for symptoms of worn shocks and struts at around the 50,000 mile mark.
