Suspension Service & Repair for 1988 BMW 325is

When To Get 1988 BMW 325is Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1988 BMW 325is, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 325is feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1988 BMW 325is in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your BMW 325is suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

BMW 325is Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 BMW 325is’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. 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 affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your BMW 325is shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 BMW 325is suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1988 325is Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my BMW's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my BMW 325is 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 right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does BMW 325is power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 325is’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per BMW's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
