When you first bought your 1997 BMW 328is, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 328is feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1997 BMW 328is, 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 328is suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your BMW 328is’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.
Your 1997 BMW 328is’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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 328is’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your BMW 328is shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1997 BMW 328is suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.
