1996 328is BMW Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1996 BMW 328is Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1996 BMW 328is, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 328is bounces, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1996 BMW 328is in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 328is 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 328is suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

BMW 328is Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1996 BMW 328is suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1996 BMW 328is shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn BMW 328is shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 328is’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1996 BMW 328is Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my BMW's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my BMW 328is 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my BMW 328is power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 328is’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per BMW's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
