When you first drove your 1988 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, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 190E, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.
The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 190E steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.
Your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 190E’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 190E’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward 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.
