1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 560SL bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL, bring it 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 560SL steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, 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 560SL

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Mercedes-Benz 560SL shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

Questions About 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Mercedes-Benz's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Mercedes-Benz 560SL get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Mercedes-Benz 560SL power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 560SL is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Mercedes-Benz service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
