1989 Mercedes-Benz 300TE Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300TE Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300TE, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 300TE jolts, leans 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 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300TE in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 300TE suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mercedes-Benz 300TE’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.

Mercedes-Benz 300TE Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300TE 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 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300TE shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz 300TE shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300TE’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1989 300TE Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mercedes-Benz's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 should my Mercedes-Benz 300TE get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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.
  • Does my Mercedes-Benz 300TE power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 300TE is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Mercedes-Benz service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
