1989 BMW 325is Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1989 BMW 325is Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1989 BMW 325is, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 325is feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1989 BMW 325is, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 325is suspension system needs repair, 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 your BMW 325is’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

BMW 325is Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1989 BMW 325is’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1989 BMW 325is shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn BMW 325is shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1989 BMW 325is suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1989 325is Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my BMW's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 325is? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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 325is power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 325is is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per BMW's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
