Is It Time For 2017 BMW 340i GT xDrive Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2017 BMW 340i GT xDrive, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 340i GT xDrive feels bouncy, 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 340i GT xDrive, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle 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 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 340i GT 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.

BMW 340i GT xDrive Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2017 BMW 340i GT xDrive’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. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2017 BMW 340i GT xDrive’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn BMW 340i GT xDrive shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2017 BMW 340i GT xDrive suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2017 340i GT xDrive Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my BMW's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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 340i GT 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.
  • When does BMW 340i GT xDrive power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 340i GT xDrive’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per BMW's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
  • What can cause my BMW 340i GT xDrive to have a bouncy ride? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your 340i GT xDrive to bounce more than usual.
  • Why does my 340i GT xDrive front end dip forward when I brake? As you brake, the forward momentum of your 340i GT xDrive combined with its weight sends a ton of force to its front end. A damaged or worn suspension system can cause the front end to compress and dip even further.
  • What are the signs that the shocks on my BMW 340i GT xDrive need replacing? Worn shock absorbers can’t absorb road bumps well, making your 340i GT xDrive feel like it’s leaning or swaying when you turn. You may also experience more shaking, rocking, or bouncing than usual as your 340i GT xDrive travels over minor bumps.
