2008 BMW 528i Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 2008 BMW 528i Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2008 BMW 528i, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 528i bounces, sways 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 2008 BMW 528i in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your BMW 528i suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your BMW 528i

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2008 BMW 528i suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2008 BMW 528i’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn BMW 528i shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2008 BMW 528i’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2008 BMW 528i Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my BMW's 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my BMW 528i? 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.
  • Does my BMW 528i 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 528i’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per BMW's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
