2007 BMW 525xi Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2007 BMW 525xi Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2007 BMW 525xi, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 525xi bounces, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2007 BMW 525xi, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your 525xi 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 525xi Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2007 BMW 525xi’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 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 525xi’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn BMW 525xi shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2007 BMW 525xi’s 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.

Questions About 2007 BMW 525xi Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 525xi's steering and 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my BMW 525xi? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how BMW intended.
  • Does my BMW 525xi power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per BMW's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
