2008 135i BMW Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 2008 BMW 135i Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2008 BMW 135i, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 135i bounces, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2008 BMW 135i, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. 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 parts of your BMW 135i suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

BMW 135i Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2008 BMW 135i’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 2008 BMW 135i’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your BMW 135i shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 BMW 135i 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.

2008 135i Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 135i's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my BMW 135i? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how BMW intended.
  • When should I have my BMW 135i power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 135i is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow BMW service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
