Is It Time For 1997 Mercedes-Benz C230 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1997 Mercedes-Benz C230, 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. Perhaps your C230 feels bouncy, leans 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 1997 Mercedes-Benz C230, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your C230 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.

Mercedes-Benz C230 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1997 Mercedes-Benz C230 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1997 Mercedes-Benz C230 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz C230 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1997 Mercedes-Benz C230’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1997 Mercedes-Benz C230 Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my C230's steering and 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Mercedes-Benz C230 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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.
  • Does my Mercedes-Benz C230 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your C230’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Mercedes-Benz's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
