1988 Mercedes-Benz 190D Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1988 Mercedes-Benz 190D Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 190D, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 190D feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 190D in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Mercedes-Benz 190D’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mercedes-Benz 190D

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 190D’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 190D’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Mercedes-Benz 190D shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 190D’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
