Suspension Service & Repair for 1990 BMW 525i

When To Get 1990 BMW 525i Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1990 BMW 525i, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 525i bounces, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1990 BMW 525i, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, 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 explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 525i steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

BMW 525i Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1990 BMW 525i suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 525i’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn BMW 525i shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1990 BMW 525i’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1990 525i Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my BMW 525i get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how BMW intended.
  • Does my BMW 525i power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 525i is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per BMW's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
