Suspension Service & Repair for 2017 BMW 440i xDrive

Does Your 2017 BMW 440i xDrive Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2017 BMW 440i xDrive, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 440i xDrive jolts, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2017 BMW 440i xDrive, bring it 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 dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 440i 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 440i xDrive Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2017 BMW 440i xDrive suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your BMW up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2017 BMW 440i 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 could all be indicators of worn BMW 440i xDrive shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2017 BMW 440i xDrive suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 2017 BMW 440i xDrive Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my BMW's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my BMW 440i xDrive get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way BMW intended.
  • When should I have my BMW 440i xDrive power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 440i xDrive is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per BMW's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
