Is It Time For 2018 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2018 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your C43 AMG feels bouncy, leans 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 2018 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 parts of your Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car 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, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2018 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2018 C43 AMG Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 should my Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • When should I have my Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your C43 AMG is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Mercedes-Benz service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
