2012 128i BMW Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 2012 BMW 128i Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2012 BMW 128i, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 128i bounces, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2012 BMW 128i in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 128i 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.

BMW 128i Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2012 BMW 128i suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 BMW up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2012 BMW 128i shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn BMW 128i shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 BMW 128i’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 2012 BMW 128i Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 128i's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my BMW 128i? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way BMW intended.
  • Does my BMW 128i power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 128i’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per BMW's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
