When To Get 2016 BMW 435i xDrive Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2016 BMW 435i xDrive, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 435i xDrive bounces, 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 435i xDrive in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 435i xDrive suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your BMW 435i xDrive’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

BMW 435i xDrive Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2016 BMW 435i xDrive’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2016 BMW 435i xDrive’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your BMW 435i xDrive shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2016 BMW 435i xDrive suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
