Suspension Service & Repair for 1986 BMW 325es

Does Your 1986 BMW 325es Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1986 BMW 325es, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 325es feels bouncy, sways 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 1986 BMW 325es, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 325es suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 325es steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your BMW 325es

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1986 BMW 325es suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1986 BMW 325es shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your BMW 325es shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 325es’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
