Suspension Service & Repair for 1998 BMW 328i

Does Your 1998 BMW 328i Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1998 BMW 328i, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 328i jolts, leans 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 1998 BMW 328i, bring it in for suspension and steering service. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 328i 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 328i 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 328i Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1998 BMW 328i’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 328i’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn BMW 328i shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 328i’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1998 328i Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my BMW 328i? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my BMW 328i power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 328i is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per BMW's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
