When you first bought your 1984 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 500SEC bounces, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1984 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.
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 dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Mercedes-Benz 500SEC’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1984 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 500SEC’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz 500SEC shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 500SEC’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
