When To Get 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 560SEL jolts, 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 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL in for suspension and steering service. 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 absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 560SEL suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1990 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. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Mercedes-Benz up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 560SEL’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 560SEL’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
