During the first few years you had your 2013 BMW 528i xDrive, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough.

We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 528i xDrive suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment.

BMW 528i xDrive Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2013 BMW 528i xDrive 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2013 BMW 528i xDrive 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 indicators of worn BMW 528i xDrive shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 528i xDrive’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

2013 528i xDrive Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 528i xDrive's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my BMW 528i 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 connect with the road how BMW intended.
  • Does my BMW 528i xDrive power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 528i xDrive’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow BMW service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
