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

Does Your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SL, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 300SL feels bouncy, pulls 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 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SL, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel 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 all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mercedes-Benz 300SL’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mercedes-Benz 300SL

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SL suspension system. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SL’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz 300SL shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 300SL’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1991 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 let you know when it's time to replace your 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 300SL? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • Does my Mercedes-Benz 300SL power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Mercedes-Benz's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
