During the first few years you had your 1998 BMW 323i, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 323i bounces, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1998 BMW 323i, bring it 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, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. 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 323i steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.
Your 1998 BMW 323i’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 1998 BMW 323i’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn BMW 323i shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 BMW 323i 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.
Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of steering or suspension problems with your 1998 BMW 323i. From shocks to ball joints, your BMW will be in good hands. Schedule an appointment today.
