When does Mercedes-Benz recommend steering and suspension service for 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300Es?

When To Get 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300E Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300E, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 300E feels bouncy, leans 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 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300E in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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 absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 300E 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.

Mercedes-Benz 300E Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1990 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300E’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz 300E shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300E suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

1990 300E Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mercedes-Benz's suspension? Maintaining your tires 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 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Mercedes-Benz 300E power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 300E is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Mercedes-Benz service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
