Does Your 2014 BMW 435i xDrive Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2014 BMW 435i xDrive, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy.

As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2014 BMW 435i xDrive, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at 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 explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 435i 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 435i xDrive Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2014 BMW 435i xDrive suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out.

A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn BMW 435i xDrive shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 435i xDrive’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
