When should you have your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 350SD suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 350SD Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 350SD, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 350SD feels bouncy, leans 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 1991 Mercedes-Benz 350SD, bring it 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 350SD suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 350SD 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.

Mercedes-Benz 350SD Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 350SD’s suspension. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 350SD’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz 350SD shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 350SD’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1991 Mercedes-Benz 350SD Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Mercedes-Benz's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mercedes-Benz 350SD? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • When does Mercedes-Benz 350SD 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 350SD’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Mercedes-Benz service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
