Wheel Alignment Service for 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL

How Does Mercedes-Benz 380SL Alignment Work?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Mercedes-Benz 380SL’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has an alignment service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way Mercedes-Benz intended them to. When your suspension is aligned to Mercedes-Benz’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Mercedes-Benz. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Mercedes-Benz 380SL

It's a good idea to have your Mercedes-Benz 380SL alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your 380SL dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
