Suspension Service & Repair for 2006 Mercedes-Benz C280

Is It Time For 2006 Mercedes-Benz C280 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2006 Mercedes-Benz C280, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your C280 bounces, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2006 Mercedes-Benz C280 in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Mercedes-Benz C280 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mercedes-Benz C280

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2006 Mercedes-Benz C280 suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2006 Mercedes-Benz C280’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz C280 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2006 Mercedes-Benz C280 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

  • When should I have my Mercedes-Benz C280 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months.
