1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL Maintenance Schedule

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

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

When you first bought your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL, 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 300SEL bounces, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 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.

Mercedes-Benz 300SEL Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz 300SEL shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1990 300SEL Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 300SEL's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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? 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 connect with the road how Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • When does Mercedes-Benz 300SEL power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 300SEL’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Mercedes-Benz's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
