1990 Mercedes-Benz 350SDL Maintenance Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Mercedes-Benz 350SDL due for service yet?

Does Your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 350SDL Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 350SDL, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 350SDL feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 350SDL in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 350SDL suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Mercedes-Benz 350SDL suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz 350SDL Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 350SDL’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 350SDL’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz 350SDL shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 350SDL’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1990 350SDL Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 350SDL 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Mercedes-Benz 350SDL 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 350SDL’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Mercedes-Benz service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
