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

Does Your 1992 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1992 Mercedes-Benz 300SL, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 300SL jolts, pulls 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 1992 Mercedes-Benz 300SL in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 300SL suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Mercedes-Benz 300SL suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz 300SL Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1992 Mercedes-Benz 300SL’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 1992 Mercedes-Benz 300SL shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz 300SL shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1992 Mercedes-Benz 300SL suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
