2005 Mercedes-Benz CL500 Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 2005 Mercedes-Benz CL500 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2005 Mercedes-Benz CL500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your CL500 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2005 Mercedes-Benz CL500, bring it 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, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mercedes-Benz CL500’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Mercedes-Benz CL500 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2005 Mercedes-Benz CL500 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 limit vibration and keep your Mercedes-Benz up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2005 Mercedes-Benz CL500 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz CL500 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your CL500’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
