2008 CL550 Mercedes-Benz Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2008 Mercedes-Benz CL550 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2008 Mercedes-Benz CL550, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your CL550 jolts, drifts 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 2008 Mercedes-Benz CL550, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your CL550 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 CL550 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2008 Mercedes-Benz CL550’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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2008 Mercedes-Benz CL550’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz CL550 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your CL550’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

2008 CL550 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 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 CL550? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • Does my Mercedes-Benz CL550 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Mercedes-Benz's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
