1989 300CE Mercedes-Benz Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300CE Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300CE, 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 300CE jolts, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300CE in for suspension and steering service. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil 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 300CE suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 300CE steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz 300CE Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300CE suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 300CE’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Mercedes-Benz 300CE shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300CE suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1989 300CE Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Mercedes-Benz 300CE 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. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • When does Mercedes-Benz 300CE 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Mercedes-Benz service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
