Not sure when or if your Mercedes-Benz C230’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Is It Time For 1998 Mercedes-Benz C230 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1998 Mercedes-Benz C230, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your C230 jolts, 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 1998 Mercedes-Benz C230 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, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Mercedes-Benz C230 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.

Mercedes-Benz C230 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 Mercedes-Benz C230 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Mercedes-Benz up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1998 Mercedes-Benz C230 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz C230 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your C230’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1998 C230 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mercedes-Benz's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mercedes-Benz C230? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • When should I have my Mercedes-Benz C230 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your C230’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Mercedes-Benz's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
