Suspension Service & Repair for 2009 BMW 328i

Is It Time For 2009 BMW 328i Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2009 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 noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2009 BMW 328i 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, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2009 BMW 328i’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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. But there's no set schedule for 2009 BMW 328i shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side 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 2009 BMW 328i suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

2009 328i Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my BMW's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • 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 does BMW 328i power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few 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.
