2018 340i GT xDrive BMW Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2018 BMW 340i GT xDrive Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2018 BMW 340i GT xDrive, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 340i GT xDrive feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2018 BMW 340i GT 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 340i GT 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.

BMW 340i GT xDrive Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 BMW 340i GT xDrive’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2018 BMW 340i GT xDrive’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn BMW 340i GT xDrive shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 340i GT xDrive’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2018 340i GT xDrive Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my BMW's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how BMW intended.
  • When should I have my BMW 340i GT xDrive power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 340i GT xDrive’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per BMW's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
