2012 BMW 528i Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 2012 BMW 528i Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2012 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, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2012 BMW 528i, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

BMW 528i Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2012 BMW 528i’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your BMW 528i shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 BMW 528i suspension 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 2012 BMW 528i Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 528i's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • 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. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does BMW 528i power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 528i is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow BMW service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
