1987 Mercedes-Benz 190D Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 190D Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 190D, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 190D feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 190D, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your 190D steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mercedes-Benz 190D

Your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 190D’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Mercedes-Benz up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 190D’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz 190D shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 190D’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1987 190D Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mercedes-Benz's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Mercedes-Benz 190D get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • Does my Mercedes-Benz 190D power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 190D’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Mercedes-Benz's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
