2009 135i BMW Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2009 BMW 135i Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2009 BMW 135i, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 135i 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 2009 BMW 135i in for steering and suspension services. 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 135i suspension system needs repair, 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your BMW 135i

Your 2009 BMW 135i’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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your BMW up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 135i’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your BMW 135i shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 135i’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2009 BMW 135i Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my BMW's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my BMW 135i? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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.
  • When should I have my BMW 135i power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 135i is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per BMW's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
