When To Get 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 190E jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 190E suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. 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.

Mercedes-Benz 190E Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Mercedes-Benz 190E shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Mercedes-Benz's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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 does Mercedes-Benz 190E power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 190E is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Mercedes-Benz's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
