What Can I Expect with Mercedes-Benz 500SL Alignment?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Mercedes-Benz 500SL’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In an alignment service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as Mercedes-Benz intended. When the system is aligned to Mercedes-Benz specifications, all of your tires experience equal pressure. This gives you several benefits: your car handles better, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 500SL, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Mercedes-Benz. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Mercedes-Benz 500SL

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Mercedes-Benz 500SL alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 500SL: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your 500SL dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
