1989 300E Mercedes-Benz Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300E Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300E, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 300E bounces, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300E in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle 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 300E suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz 300E Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300E suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300E shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz 300E shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 300E’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
