Suspension Service & Repair for 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL

When To Get 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 560SEL feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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 dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. 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 parts of your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL 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 560SEL Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 560SEL’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz 560SEL shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 560SEL's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mercedes-Benz 560SEL? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Mercedes-Benz 560SEL power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 560SEL’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Mercedes-Benz service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
