2018 430i xDrive Gran Coupe BMW Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2018 BMW 430i xDrive Gran Coupe Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2018 BMW 430i xDrive Gran Coupe, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 430i xDrive Gran Coupe feels bouncy, drifts 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 2018 BMW 430i xDrive Gran Coupe, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 430i xDrive Gran Coupe suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your BMW 430i xDrive Gran Coupe 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 430i xDrive Gran Coupe Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2018 BMW 430i xDrive Gran Coupe’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 limit vibration and keep your BMW up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2018 BMW 430i xDrive Gran Coupe’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your BMW 430i xDrive Gran Coupe shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2018 BMW 430i xDrive Gran Coupe’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my BMW's suspension?
