We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your BMW 320i xDrive’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment.

BMW 320i xDrive Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2014 BMW 320i xDrive’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 2014 BMW 320i xDrive’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn BMW 320i xDrive shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2014 BMW 320i xDrive’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2014 320i xDrive Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 320i xDrive's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my BMW 320i xDrive? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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 320i xDrive power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 320i xDrive is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per BMW's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
