Does Your 1997 Mercedes-Benz E320 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1997 Mercedes-Benz E320, 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 E320 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1997 Mercedes-Benz E320 in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your E320 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Mercedes-Benz E320 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mercedes-Benz E320

Your 1997 Mercedes-Benz E320’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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your E320’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz E320 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your E320’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1997 Mercedes-Benz E320 Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Mercedes-Benz's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mercedes-Benz E320? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Mercedes-Benz E320 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your E320’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Mercedes-Benz's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
