2014 335i xDrive BMW Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2014 BMW 335i xDrive Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2014 BMW 335i xDrive, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 335i xDrive feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2014 BMW 335i xDrive in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 335i xDrive 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your BMW 335i xDrive

Your 2014 BMW 335i xDrive’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. 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 335i xDrive’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn BMW 335i xDrive shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 335i xDrive’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2014 335i xDrive Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 335i xDrive's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • Why should my BMW 335i xDrive get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my BMW 335i xDrive power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 335i xDrive is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per BMW's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
