2007 328xi BMW Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 2007 BMW 328xi Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2007 BMW 328xi, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 328xi bounces, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2007 BMW 328xi, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 328xi suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 328xi steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

BMW 328xi Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2007 BMW 328xi’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 328xi’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn BMW 328xi shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2007 BMW 328xi’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2007 328xi Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 328xi's steering and 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 328xi 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way BMW intended.
  • When should I have my BMW 328xi power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per BMW's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
