When you first bought your 2012 BMW 135i, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 135i feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2012 BMW 135i in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.
We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel 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 your BMW 135i’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.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2012 BMW 135i suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2012 BMW 135i shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn 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. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
