2005 Mercedes-Benz C55 AMG Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2005 Mercedes-Benz C55 AMG Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2005 Mercedes-Benz C55 AMG, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your C55 AMG bounces, 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 2005 Mercedes-Benz C55 AMG in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 C55 AMG 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 C55 AMG Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2005 Mercedes-Benz C55 AMG suspension system. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your C55 AMG’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz C55 AMG shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2005 Mercedes-Benz C55 AMG’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
