1993 BMW 318i Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1993 BMW 318i Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1993 BMW 318i, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 318i feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1993 BMW 318i, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your BMW 318i’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 318i Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1993 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. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. 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 318i’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn BMW 318i shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1993 BMW 318i suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

1993 318i Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my BMW's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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 318i get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how BMW intended.
  • Does my BMW 318i power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 318i is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per BMW's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
