When To Get 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 500SEL feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 500SEL suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mercedes-Benz 500SEL’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 500SEL Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL’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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz 500SEL shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
