When you first bought your 1992 BMW 318is, 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 318is bounces, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1992 BMW 318is in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.
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, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 318is suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your BMW 318is suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1992 BMW 318is suspension system. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1992 BMW 318is’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your BMW 318is shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1992 BMW 318is suspension 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.
