2011 335i xDrive BMW Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 2011 BMW 335i xDrive Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2011 BMW 335i xDrive, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 335i xDrive jolts, 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 2011 BMW 335i xDrive, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 your 335i xDrive steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your BMW 335i xDrive

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2011 BMW 335i xDrive’s suspension. 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 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 335i xDrive’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn BMW 335i xDrive shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 335i xDrive’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.

2011 335i xDrive Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my BMW's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my BMW 335i xDrive? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way BMW intended.
  • When should I have my BMW 335i xDrive power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 335i xDrive’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow BMW service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
