Is It Time For 1990 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 420SEL jolts, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 420SEL suspension system needs repair, 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 parts of your Mercedes-Benz 420SEL suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz 420SEL Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz 420SEL shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 420SEL’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
