Suspension Service & Repair for 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SE

Does Your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SE Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SE, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 300SE jolts, 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 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SE in for steering and suspension repairs. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 300SE suspension system needs repair, 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 your 300SE steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Mercedes-Benz 300SE Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SE suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. 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 factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Mercedes-Benz 300SE shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SE’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.
