2014 BMW 228i Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 2014 BMW 228i Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2014 BMW 228i, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 228i jolts, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2014 BMW 228i in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 228i suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your BMW 228i’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

BMW 228i Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2014 BMW 228i’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 228i’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your BMW 228i shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2014 BMW 228i’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
