Is It Time For 1991 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 420SEL jolts, drifts 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 1991 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Mercedes-Benz 420SEL suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Mercedes-Benz 420SEL Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Mercedes-Benz up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Mercedes-Benz 420SEL shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1991 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL 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 let you know when it's time to replace your 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 420SEL? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Mercedes-Benz 420SEL power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change.
