1986 300E Mercedes-Benz Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300E Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300E, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 300E feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300E in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 300E 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 300E Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300E 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300E’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz 300E shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300E’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1986 300E Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mercedes-Benz 300E? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Mercedes-Benz 300E 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 300E is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Mercedes-Benz's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
