1988 BMW 325iX Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1988 BMW 325iX Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1988 BMW 325iX, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 325iX bounces, sways 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 1988 BMW 325iX 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 325iX 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 parts of your BMW 325iX 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 325iX Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1988 BMW 325iX’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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1988 BMW 325iX’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn BMW 325iX shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1988 BMW 325iX’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.
