Suspension Service & Repair for 1984 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC

Is It Time For 1984 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC Suspension Service?

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.

Mercedes-Benz 500SEC Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

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. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1984 500SEC Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 500SEC get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • When does Mercedes-Benz 500SEC power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Mercedes-Benz's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
