1985 300CD Mercedes-Benz Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300CD Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300CD, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 300CD bounces, 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 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300CD in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Mercedes-Benz 300CD’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mercedes-Benz 300CD

Your 1985 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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300CD’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Mercedes-Benz 300CD shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 300CD’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1985 300CD Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 300CD's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mercedes-Benz 300CD? 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 the tires connect with the road how Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • Does my Mercedes-Benz 300CD power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 300CD’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Mercedes-Benz service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
