1989 300SEL Mercedes-Benz Steering & Suspension Services

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

When you first drove your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 300SEL feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL in for suspension and steering service. 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, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mercedes-Benz 300SEL’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz 300SEL Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 300SEL’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz 300SEL shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1989 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 should my Mercedes-Benz 300SEL get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Mercedes-Benz 300SEL power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 300SEL’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Mercedes-Benz's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
