Not sure when or if your Mercedes-Benz 300D’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300D Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300D, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 300D jolts, leans 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 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300D in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 parts of your Mercedes-Benz 300D suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz 300D Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300D’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. 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, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz 300D shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300D suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

Questions About 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300D Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Mercedes-Benz's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mercedes-Benz 300D? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Mercedes-Benz 300D power steering fluid need to be checked? 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 top it off per Mercedes-Benz's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
