Suspension Service & Repair for 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL

Is It Time For 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 300SEL jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL’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 300SEL

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz 300SEL shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in 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 300SEL? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • When should I have my Mercedes-Benz 300SEL power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Mercedes-Benz's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
