The control arm of your vehicle is an integral part of your Mercedes Benz Suspension system, as it controls the car over bumps and holes or in case of quick stops. Your suspension works by controlling the vertical movement of your vehicle and it keeps your tires in contact with the road which is essential for a better and safer ride.
However, the suspension could not operate without the help of your Mercedes Benz control arm. As you can see from the diagram, The Mercedes Benz control arm is like a metal bar that has a pivot at both ends and what is called rubber bushings at the other. The Mercedes Benz control arm allows your tires to move up and down freely, which provides for a smooth and safe ride with the least amount of friction as possible.
If you notice and wear on your control arm it is better if you replace it immediately to prevent any major damage to your whole suspension system due to your wearing control arm.
The Mercedes Benz suspension system is very fragile that’s why it needs essential care and maintenance in order to perform efficiently.
Remember, as soon as you suspect the suspension is experiencing wear and tear please bring your Mercedes Benz to German Car Depot for a full inspection or to replace your control arm and bushings.
