When To Get 1996 Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1996 Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG, 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 C36 AMG bounces, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1996 Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your C36 AMG 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.

Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1996 Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Mercedes-Benz up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your C36 AMG’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1996 Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1996 C36 AMG Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mercedes-Benz's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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 C36 AMG? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • When should I have my Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change.
