Mercedes Performance Parts Online

Mercedes is an admired brand that manufactures some of the best luxury performance vehicles in the auto industry. When it comes to lowering your Mercedes's suspension there are several methods. The most common method of modifying your vehicles ride height is with lowering springs. When installing lowering springs it is a good idea to upgrade your shocks as well since OEM shocks and struts are not set correctly to work with lowering springs. The term coilover is short for a coil-over-shock setup. This is where your Mercedes’s coil spring is added around your shock. Coilovers were designed for racing, so that the suspension height and dampening settings were easily changed with ease. Though they may look similar to a Macpherson strut system, which is also a spring and shock assembly, but coilovers are much more complex. It is also popular to add a performance air intake system onto Mercedes's as well. Cold air intakes as they are often called allow the engine to breathe better allowing for improved throttle response and a nice induction sound. FCP Euro has a variety of Mercedes performance parts and components, including all parts for Mercedes’s vehicles.

Your Mercedes’s springs are usually either a single progressive spring or a multi-spring setup with a one main spring known as the helper spring. The helper spring is lighter and needed only when your suspension is at full droop through hard turns. The helper spring makes sure that your Mercedes ’s main spring keeps stable. The number one advantage of coilovers is the range of adjustment they allow. Coilovers are height adjustable through the spring perches that are threaded onto the shock body. These shocks usually provide a range of adjustability that includes shock compression, the downward stroke, and rebound, the upward stroke of the shock as the suspension unloads. This has as many as 15 or more settings for each. FCP Euro's attentive and prepared call center team is always accessible and waiting to help out with any support or questions you have.
