1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 560SEL feels bouncy, sways 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 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 560SEL steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Mercedes-Benz up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz 560SEL shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 560SEL’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
