When you first drove your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 560SL bounces, sways 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 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 560SL 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 560SL’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL suspension system. 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 getting your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz 560SL shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.
