2011 BMW 328i Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 2011 BMW 328i Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2011 BMW 328i, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 328i feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2011 BMW 328i in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your BMW 328i’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

BMW 328i Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2011 BMW 328i 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your BMW up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2011 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 forward and backward could all be signs of worn BMW 328i shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 328i’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
