2017 340i BMW Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2017 BMW 340i Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2017 BMW 340i, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 340i bounces, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2017 BMW 340i in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. 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 parts of your BMW 340i suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

BMW 340i Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2017 BMW 340i’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 340i’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 340i shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2017 BMW 340i suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 2017 BMW 340i Steering & Suspension

  • 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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my BMW 340i? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does BMW 340i power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 340i’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow BMW service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
