Does Your 2012 Mercedes-Benz CL550 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2012 Mercedes-Benz CL550, 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 CL550 feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2012 Mercedes-Benz CL550 in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, 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 issue 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz CL550 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2012 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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2012 Mercedes-Benz CL550’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz CL550 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 Mercedes-Benz CL550’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
