2012 BMW 328i Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2012 BMW 328i Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2012 BMW 328i, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 328i jolts, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2012 BMW 328i, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 328i suspension system needs repair, 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

BMW 328i Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2012 BMW 328i’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2012 BMW 328i’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn BMW 328i shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 BMW 328i’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 2012 BMW 328i Steering & Suspension

  • 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 should my BMW 328i get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire 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 can fill it per BMW's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
