2018 320i xDrive BMW Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2018 BMW 320i xDrive Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2018 BMW 320i xDrive, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 320i xDrive jolts, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2018 BMW 320i xDrive in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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 parts, 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 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 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. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your BMW 320i xDrive

Your 2018 BMW 320i xDrive’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your BMW up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2018 BMW 320i xDrive’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn BMW 320i xDrive shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2018 BMW 320i xDrive suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
