1998 BMW 528i Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1998 BMW 528i Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1998 BMW 528i, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 528i bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1998 BMW 528i, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 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 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1998 BMW 528i’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1998 BMW 528i shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn BMW 528i shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 528i’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1998 BMW 528i Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my BMW's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my BMW 528i get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 connect with the road how BMW intended.
  • When should I have my BMW 528i power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 528i’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per BMW's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
