1988 560SEC Mercedes-Benz Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 560SEC bounces, drifts 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 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 parts of your Mercedes-Benz 560SEC suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, 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 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.
