Is the steering and suspension system in your Mercedes-Benz 300SL due for service yet?

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

When you first drove your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SL, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 300SL bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SL in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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 components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 parts of your Mercedes-Benz 300SL suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz 300SL Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SL 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 300SL’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Mercedes-Benz 300SL shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 300SL’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 300SL's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mercedes-Benz 300SL? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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.
  • When does Mercedes-Benz 300SL 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 300SL’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Mercedes-Benz's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
