During the first few years you had your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL, 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 560SL feels bouncy, pulls 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 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.
We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.
Your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 560SL shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Mercedes-Benz 560SL shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
