Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SE

Not sure when or if your Mercedes-Benz 300SE’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SE Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SE, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 300SE bounces, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SE in for steering and suspension repairs. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 300SE steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mercedes-Benz 300SE

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SE’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SE shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Mercedes-Benz 300SE shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SE’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1990 300SE Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 300SE's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mercedes-Benz 300SE? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • Does my Mercedes-Benz 300SE power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 300SE is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Mercedes-Benz's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
