Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1998 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG

Not sure when or if your Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Is It Time For 1998 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1998 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your C43 AMG feels bouncy, 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 1998 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your C43 AMG 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 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1998 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 C43 AMG’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1998 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1998 C43 AMG Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my C43 AMG's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG? 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.
  • When should I have my Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your C43 AMG is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Mercedes-Benz's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
