Suspension Service & Repair for 2020 BMW 230i

Is It Time For 2020 BMW 230i Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2020 BMW 230i, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 230i feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2020 BMW 230i in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 230i 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 230i Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2020 BMW 230i’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. 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 230i’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn BMW 230i shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2020 BMW 230i suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 2020 BMW 230i Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my BMW's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my BMW 230i get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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.
  • Does my BMW 230i power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 230i’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per BMW's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
