Suspension Service & Repair for 2008 BMW 328i

Is It Time For 2008 BMW 328i Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2008 BMW 328i, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 328i jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2008 BMW 328i in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 328i 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 328i Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2008 BMW 328i’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your BMW up off the ground. 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, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn BMW 328i shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 BMW 328i suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

2008 328i Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 328i's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my BMW 328i? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires 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? 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’ll top it off per BMW's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
