2017 BMW 330i Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 2017 BMW 330i Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2017 BMW 330i, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 330i bounces, sways 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 2017 BMW 330i, 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 dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your BMW 330i 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your BMW 330i

Your 2017 BMW 330i’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2017 BMW 330i 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 can all point to issues with your BMW 330i shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 330i’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

2017 330i Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my BMW's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my BMW 330i? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my BMW 330i power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 330i is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow BMW service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
