Suspension Service & Repair for 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300D

Is It Time For 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300D Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300D, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 300D bounces, pulls 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 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300D 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 300D steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mercedes-Benz 300D

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300D’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300D shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz 300D shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300D suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300D Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 300D's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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 300D get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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.
  • Does my Mercedes-Benz 300D 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 300D is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Mercedes-Benz's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
