Is It Time For 2011 BMW 528i Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2011 BMW 528i, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 528i jolts, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2011 BMW 528i, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 528i suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your BMW 528i’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, 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

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2011 BMW 528i suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your BMW up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 528i’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs 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. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
