Suspension Service & Repair for 1985 Mercedes-Benz 190E

Is It Time For 1985 Mercedes-Benz 190E Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 190E, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 190E jolts, leans 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 1985 Mercedes-Benz 190E in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 190E suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mercedes-Benz 190E’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Mercedes-Benz 190E Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 190E suspension system. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 190E’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz 190E shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 190E’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
