1987 190E Mercedes-Benz Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1987 Mercedes-Benz 190E Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 190E, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 190E feels bouncy, pulls 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 190E, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 190E 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 190E

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 190E suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 190E’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz 190E shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 190E suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1987 190E Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 190E's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mercedes-Benz 190E? 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 connect with the road how Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • When should I have my Mercedes-Benz 190E power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 190E’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Mercedes-Benz's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
