2016 320i BMW Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2016 BMW 320i Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2016 BMW 320i, 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 320i feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2016 BMW 320i in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your BMW 320i suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

BMW 320i Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2016 BMW 320i suspension system. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2016 BMW 320i’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn BMW 320i shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2016 BMW 320i suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2016 320i Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my BMW's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my BMW 320i? 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.
  • When should I have my BMW 320i power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 320i is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per BMW's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
