Question about Mercedes-Benz 500-Class
Haw to test the front shock absorbers ?
Go to each corner of the car. push the car down and up a couple of times to try to get it going up and down as best you can then let go. The car should return to normal in one movement not bounce up and down.
Shocks may be expensive but besides a more comfortable ride they are a safety feature because they keep your wheels on the ground. Bad shocks let your car bounce - if you hit your breaks the car will bounce and on the up bounce the wheels can skid and it takes longer to stop.

The shocks are electronic and very expensive. Changed mine last year, the fronts were $87.00 each and thr rear $125.00 each. They could only be purchased from the dealer. Haven't seen any online. They have a connection at the top that monitors the pressure or something.

These are just regular shocks and not struts so they should come out with just common tools. You may need to soak the fasteners in penetrating oil for a while or, use heat tget the fasteners to break loose from the corrosion.
