1987 300SDL Mercedes-Benz Steering & Suspension Services

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

When you first bought your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300SDL, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 300SDL feels bouncy, drifts 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 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300SDL in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 300SDL suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Mercedes-Benz 300SDL’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mercedes-Benz 300SDL

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300SDL’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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 300SDL’s shocks and struts 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 signs of worn Mercedes-Benz 300SDL shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 300SDL’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1987 300SDL Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mercedes-Benz's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mercedes-Benz 300SDL? 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 the tires connect with the road how Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • Does my Mercedes-Benz 300SDL power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 300SDL is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Mercedes-Benz's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
