Suspension Service & Repair for 1985 BMW 325e

Does Your 1985 BMW 325e Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1985 BMW 325e, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 325e jolts, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1985 BMW 325e, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 325e 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.

BMW 325e Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1985 BMW 325e’s suspension. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 325e’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your BMW 325e shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 325e’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1985 325e Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 325e's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my BMW 325e get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how BMW intended.
  • When should I have my BMW 325e power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 325e is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow BMW service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
