2006 325xi BMW Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2006 BMW 325xi Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2006 BMW 325xi, 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 325xi bounces, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2006 BMW 325xi, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your BMW 325xi’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

BMW 325xi Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2006 BMW 325xi’s suspension. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2006 BMW 325xi shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn BMW 325xi shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2006 BMW 325xi’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.

2006 325xi Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 325xi 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 325xi power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 325xi is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow BMW service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
