1985 500SEC Mercedes-Benz Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 500SEC bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 500SEC 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 your 500SEC steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz 500SEC Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz 500SEC shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 500SEC’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC 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. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mercedes-Benz 500SEC? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • Does my Mercedes-Benz 500SEC power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 500SEC’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Mercedes-Benz service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
