1984 300D Mercedes-Benz Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1984 Mercedes-Benz 300D Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1984 Mercedes-Benz 300D, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 300D feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1984 Mercedes-Benz 300D, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 300D 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mercedes-Benz 300D

Your 1984 Mercedes-Benz 300D’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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 300D’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz 300D shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1984 Mercedes-Benz 300D’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1984 300D Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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.
  • Why should my Mercedes-Benz 300D get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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.
  • When should I have my Mercedes-Benz 300D power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 300D’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Mercedes-Benz's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
