When To Get 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300TE Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300TE, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 300TE bounces, leans 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 300TE in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 300TE steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, 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 300TE

Your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300TE’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 300TE’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz 300TE shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300TE’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1990 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 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.
  • Why should my Mercedes-Benz 300TE get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Mercedes-Benz 300TE power steering fluid 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 top it off per Mercedes-Benz's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
