1987 325 BMW Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1987 BMW 325 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1987 BMW 325, 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 325 bounces, sways 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 1987 BMW 325 in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 325 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your BMW 325

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1987 BMW 325’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 limit vibration and keep your BMW up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1987 BMW 325’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn BMW 325 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1987 BMW 325’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1987 325 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 325's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my BMW 325 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how BMW intended.
  • Does my BMW 325 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 325 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per BMW's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
