2011 CL600 Mercedes-Benz Steering & Suspension Services

2011 Mercedes-Benz CL600 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL600 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL600 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL600, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your CL600 jolts, pulls 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 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL600 in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your CL600 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz CL600 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL600’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there's no set schedule for 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL600 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Mercedes-Benz CL600 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL600 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2011 CL600 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 let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Mercedes-Benz CL600 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Mercedes-Benz CL600 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your CL600 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Mercedes-Benz's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
