Is It Time For 1991 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 560SEL feels bouncy, leans 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 1991 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL’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 getting your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz 560SEL shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1991 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Steering & Suspension
