Is the steering and suspension system in your Mercedes-Benz CL550 due for service yet?

When To Get 2009 Mercedes-Benz CL550 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2009 Mercedes-Benz CL550, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your CL550 bounces, pulls 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 2009 Mercedes-Benz CL550 in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 CL550 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mercedes-Benz CL550

Your 2009 Mercedes-Benz CL550’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 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 CL550’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz CL550 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your CL550’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2009 CL550 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Mercedes-Benz's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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 CL550 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 CL550 power steering fluid 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 follow Mercedes-Benz service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
