2013 128i BMW Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 2013 BMW 128i Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2013 BMW 128i, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 128i feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2013 BMW 128i 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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 128i suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your BMW 128i’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

BMW 128i Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2013 BMW 128i’s suspension. 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your BMW up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2013 BMW 128i’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn BMW 128i shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2013 BMW 128i suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2013 128i Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my BMW's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new 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? 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 connect with the road how BMW intended.
  • Does my BMW 128i 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 BMW's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
