When To Get 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300TE Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300TE, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy.

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, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work.
