1987 BMW 528e Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1987 BMW 528e Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1987 BMW 528e, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 528e feels bouncy, drifts 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 1987 BMW 528e in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 528e suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your BMW 528e 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.

BMW 528e Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1987 BMW 528e suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 528e’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn BMW 528e shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 BMW 528e suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1987 528e Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my BMW 528e? 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 come into contact with the road in the way BMW intended.
  • When should I have my BMW 528e power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 528e is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per BMW's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
