2016 340i xDrive BMW Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2016 BMW 340i xDrive Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2016 BMW 340i xDrive, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 340i xDrive feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2016 BMW 340i xDrive in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel 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 340i xDrive suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

BMW 340i xDrive Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2016 BMW 340i 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your BMW up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2016 BMW 340i 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 indicators of worn BMW 340i xDrive shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 340i xDrive’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

2016 340i xDrive Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 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.
  • Why should my BMW 340i xDrive get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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 does BMW 340i 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 xDrive’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per BMW's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
