1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 560SEC 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 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Mercedes-Benz 560SEC suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz 560SEC Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC suspension system. 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 limit vibration and keep your Mercedes-Benz up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz 560SEC shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1986 560SEC Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 560SEC's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mercedes-Benz 560SEC? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Mercedes-Benz 560SEC power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 560SEC is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Mercedes-Benz's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
