1987 BMW 325is Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1987 BMW 325is Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1987 BMW 325is, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 325is jolts, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1987 BMW 325is in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your BMW 325is 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.

BMW 325is Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1987 BMW 325is’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 325is’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn BMW 325is shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 325is’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
