1988 300SE Mercedes-Benz Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SE Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SE, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 300SE jolts, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SE, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 300SE 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 300SE Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SE suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Mercedes-Benz up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 300SE’s shocks and struts 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 can all point to issues with your Mercedes-Benz 300SE shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SE suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
