Suspension Service & Repair for 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC

Does Your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 560SEC bounces, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 560SEC 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 560SEC

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC’s suspension. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Mercedes-Benz 560SEC shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1987 560SEC Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mercedes-Benz 560SEC? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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.
  • Does my Mercedes-Benz 560SEC power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 560SEC is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Mercedes-Benz's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
