2008 BMW 528xi Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 2008 BMW 528xi Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2008 BMW 528xi, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 528xi feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2008 BMW 528xi in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 528xi’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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your BMW 528xi

Your 2008 BMW 528xi’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2008 BMW 528xi’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your BMW 528xi shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2008 BMW 528xi’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2008 528xi Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my BMW's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my BMW 528xi? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way BMW intended.
  • Does my BMW 528xi power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow BMW service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
