When To Get 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300CD Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300CD, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 300CD feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300CD 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel 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 parts of your Mercedes-Benz 300CD 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 300CD Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300CD’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300CD’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz 300CD shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300CD suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1983 300CD Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mercedes-Benz's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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.
  • Why should my Mercedes-Benz 300CD get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Mercedes-Benz 300CD 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 300CD is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Mercedes-Benz's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
