Does Your 2016 BMW 528i xDrive Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2016 BMW 528i xDrive, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough.

The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2016 BMW 528i xDrive 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 528i xDrive suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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 a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

BMW 528i xDrive Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2016 BMW 528i xDrive 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.

Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your BMW 528i xDrive shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2016 BMW 528i xDrive suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
