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

Does Your 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500SL Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500SL, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 500SL jolts, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500SL in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 500SL 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.

Mercedes-Benz 500SL Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500SL suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Mercedes-Benz up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500SL shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Mercedes-Benz 500SL shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500SL suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

Questions About 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500SL Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 500SL's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Mercedes-Benz 500SL get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your 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? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Mercedes-Benz's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
