1987 BMW 325es Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1987 BMW 325es Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1987 BMW 325es, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 325es feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1987 BMW 325es, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. 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 parts of your BMW 325es suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your BMW 325es

Your 1987 BMW 325es’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 limit vibration and keep your BMW up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 325es’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn BMW 325es shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 BMW 325es suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.
