1988 Mercedes-Benz 300CE Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300CE Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300CE, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 300CE jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300CE in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 300CE’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Mercedes-Benz 300CE Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300CE’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 limit vibration and keep your Mercedes-Benz up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300CE shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz 300CE shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 300CE’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.
