1989 Mercedes-Benz 190D Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1989 Mercedes-Benz 190D Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 190D, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 190D bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1989 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 190D suspension system needs repair, 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 a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz 190D Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 190D’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 1989 Mercedes-Benz 190D’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz 190D shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 190D’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1989 190D Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 190D's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mercedes-Benz 190D? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • Does my Mercedes-Benz 190D power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 190D is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Mercedes-Benz's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
