During the first few years you had your 1984 BMW 318i, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 318i jolts, 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 1984 BMW 318i in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.
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, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 318i suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 318i steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.
Your 1984 BMW 318i’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. 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 1984 BMW 318i shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn BMW 318i shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1984 BMW 318i’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
