When To Get 1991 Mercedes-Benz 500SL Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 500SL, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 500SL feels bouncy, leans 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 1991 Mercedes-Benz 500SL in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Mercedes-Benz 500SL suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz 500SL Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 500SL 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1991 Mercedes-Benz 500SL shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Mercedes-Benz 500SL shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 500SL suspension 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.

Questions About 1991 Mercedes-Benz 500SL Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mercedes-Benz's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires.

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.
  • When should I have my Mercedes-Benz 500SL power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months.
