Is the steering and suspension system in your Mercedes-Benz 500SEL due for service yet?

Does Your 1993 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1993 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL, 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 500SEL bounces, sways 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 1993 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 500SEL steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mercedes-Benz 500SEL

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1993 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL’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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1993 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Mercedes-Benz 500SEL shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1993 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 1993 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact 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.
  • Why should my Mercedes-Benz 500SEL 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • Does my Mercedes-Benz 500SEL power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 500SEL’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Mercedes-Benz's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
