2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your AMG GT R feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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 absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 parts of your Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R

Your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R’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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your AMG GT R’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
