Suspension Service & Repair for 1994 BMW 318i

When To Get 1994 BMW 318i Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1994 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. Maybe your 318i jolts, sways 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 1994 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, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your BMW 318i suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

BMW 318i Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1994 BMW 318i’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. 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. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn BMW 318i shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1994 BMW 318i’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1994 318i Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my BMW's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my BMW 318i? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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.
  • When does BMW 318i power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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 follow BMW service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
