1997 328i BMW Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1997 BMW 328i Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1997 BMW 328i, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 328i feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1997 BMW 328i in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 328i steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your BMW 328i

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1997 BMW 328i suspension system. 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 limit vibration and keep your BMW up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1997 BMW 328i shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your BMW 328i shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1997 BMW 328i’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1997 328i Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 328i's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my BMW 328i get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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 328i power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 328i is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow BMW service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
