During the first few years you had your 2000 BMW 323i, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 323i feels bouncy, 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 2000 BMW 323i 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 323i suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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 2000 BMW 323i’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 323i’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn BMW 323i shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 323i’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
