1983 300TD Mercedes-Benz Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300TD Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300TD, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 300TD jolts, sways 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 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300TD, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 300TD steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz 300TD Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300TD suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 getting your 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300TD’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Mercedes-Benz 300TD shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300TD suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1983 300TD Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 300TD's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mercedes-Benz 300TD? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • When does Mercedes-Benz 300TD 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 300TD’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Mercedes-Benz's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
