Shock & Strut Replacements for Your BMW 328i xDrive

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2011 BMW 328i xDrive suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 328i xDrive’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn BMW 328i xDrive shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2011 BMW 328i xDrive’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.
