Suspension Service & Repair for 1986 Mercedes-Benz 190E

When To Get 1986 Mercedes-Benz 190E Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1986 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 a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 190E, bring it 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 190E 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 parts of your Mercedes-Benz 190E suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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 190E

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 190E’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 190E’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs 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. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
