1989 325iX BMW Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1989 BMW 325iX Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1989 BMW 325iX, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 325iX jolts, sways 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 325iX, bring it 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, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 your 325iX steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

BMW 325iX Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 BMW 325iX suspension system. 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 1989 BMW 325iX’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn BMW 325iX shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1989 BMW 325iX suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1989 325iX Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact 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.
  • Why should my BMW 325iX get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how BMW intended.
  • When should I have my BMW 325iX power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 325iX’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow BMW service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
