1988 BMW 325i Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1988 BMW 325i Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1988 BMW 325i, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 325i jolts, leans 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 1988 BMW 325i, 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 325i suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your BMW 325i’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

BMW 325i Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 BMW 325i’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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1988 BMW 325i shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your BMW 325i shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 325i’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1988 325i Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 325i's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my BMW 325i? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way BMW intended.
  • When should I have my BMW 325i power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 325i is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per BMW's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
