2008 Mercedes-Benz C350 Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 2008 Mercedes-Benz C350 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2008 Mercedes-Benz C350, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your C350 jolts, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2008 Mercedes-Benz C350 in for suspension and steering service. 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, shock absorbers, 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 C350 suspension system needs repair, 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 your Mercedes-Benz C350’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Mercedes-Benz C350 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2008 Mercedes-Benz C350’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 2008 Mercedes-Benz C350’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz C350 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 Mercedes-Benz C350 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2008 C350 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Mercedes-Benz's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mercedes-Benz C350? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 C350 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your C350 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Mercedes-Benz's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
