Is the steering and suspension system in your Mercedes-Benz C280 due for service yet?

Does Your 1995 Mercedes-Benz C280 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1995 Mercedes-Benz C280, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your C280 jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1995 Mercedes-Benz C280 in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your C280 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your C280 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, 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 C280

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1995 Mercedes-Benz C280’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1995 Mercedes-Benz C280’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Mercedes-Benz C280 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your C280’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1995 C280 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 help you notice when you need new 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.
  • Why should my Mercedes-Benz C280 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • When does Mercedes-Benz C280 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your C280 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Mercedes-Benz's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
