What does the "ACCUMULATOR" do in the suspension/ shocks system.
After stupidly leaving a very heavy load on my '94 E-320 Wagon, my MB sits lower and driving bumpy roads feels like I have no shocks. I depressed them for so long that they are no longer absorbing bumps as they should -- or so I thought.! I was simply going to get 4 new shocks since the coil springs are O.K. My MB mechanics say my shocks are O.K., and all I need are a set of "ACCUMULATORS" for a mere $700 +. I do not know what they are yet, but I am confused now. Can anyone educate me about what they are talking about? Thank you very much, CARL ERLENDSON ---------
you really need to consider keeping the car the way it was designed so you maintain the best performance and ride. Go to ecklersmbzparts.com and price out what you need. I think you will find their prices are a fraction of MB's and actually have a longer warranty. The part you need may be item P32-074 which sells for 119.99 each. Your car has two of these.
