BMW Strut Parts
You take your BMW out often for rides along the California coastline when you can on the weekends but during the week your hectic commute puts your BMW through a lot. Especially because the roads you travel on are pretty bumpy and are in need of repair due to the potholes forming on them. We both know you would rather be driving along that coastline most days but since that’s not your reality and the roads you mostly do commute on are bad ones you need to make sure your BMW struts are in good shape. Since you commute so much on bad roads and your BMW has more than 50,000 miles it is best to get them checked out to see if it is time for BMW strut assembly.
The function of your BMW shocks and struts are important in order to maintain your car from bouncing like a wild horse. Let’s focus more on the BMW strut. The struts in your BMW are going to contain a number of suspension components, which include the coil spring, the spring seats, the shock absorbers, the strut bearing, and the steering knuckle. Since your BMW strut is an integral part of the suspension system it is mounted to the chassis of the vehicle on the top portion.
Your BMW strut assembly is going to help you stabilize the suspension system like we mentioned above but besides that they have other functions. The first of those functions is that the BMW strut will reduce the bounce of your BMW. Struts apply various degrees of tension to the front and rear of a vehicle that will limit the road bounce and bumpiness. The BMW strut will also maintain your vehicle ride stable so that you don’t have an erratic or jerky ride. Two other functions of your BMW strut are going to be reducing frame stress and contributing to proper wheel alignment.
But how will you know when to change your BMW strut? There are warning signs you need to take notice of when it comes to this. You may notice a vibrating thumping noise coming from the tire area, a rocky ride when going over bumps or if your BMV strut is completely broken then your car can lean a lot to one side. Other things you may notice are squeaking noises as you go over minor bumps and lastly a floating feeling as the car drives over smooth surfaces with minor bumps.
