When you first drove your 2012 BMW Alpina B7L xDrive, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough.

As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2012 BMW Alpina B7L xDrive, bring it 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 absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Alpina B7L xDrive suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your BMW Alpina B7L xDrive’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

BMW Alpina B7L xDrive Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2012 BMW Alpina B7L xDrive’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2012 BMW Alpina B7L xDrive’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your BMW Alpina B7L xDrive shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Alpina B7L xDrive’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.
