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, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 C350 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.

Mercedes-Benz C350 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2009 Mercedes-Benz C350’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 limit vibration and keep your Mercedes-Benz up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2009 Mercedes-Benz C350’s shocks and struts replaced 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 C350 shocks and struts.
