1989 Mercedes-Benz 260E Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 260E Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 260E, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 260E jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 260E in for suspension and steering service. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 260E 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 your Mercedes-Benz 260E’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz 260E Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 260E suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 1989 Mercedes-Benz 260E’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Mercedes-Benz 260E shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 260E’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

1989 260E Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Mercedes-Benz's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mercedes-Benz 260E? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • Does my Mercedes-Benz 260E power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Mercedes-Benz's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
