1991 525i BMW Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1991 BMW 525i Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1991 BMW 525i, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 525i bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1991 BMW 525i in for suspension and steering service. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. 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 parts of your BMW 525i suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your BMW 525i

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1991 BMW 525i’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 1991 BMW 525i shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn BMW 525i shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1991 BMW 525i’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1991 525i Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 525i's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my BMW 525i? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all 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’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow BMW service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
