Research on Shocks for BMW X5

Shocks on your BMW X5 make the ride more fun instead of punishing, but with time, your shocks will get worn and need to be replaced. You'll notice shock problems when driving your BMW by subtle symptoms. If you pick up on those and get a BMW X5 shock replacement for your vehicle, you can prevent excessive wear on yourself and your suspension system.

What is the Difference Between Shocks and Struts?

You have both rear shocks and BMW X5 front struts. The latter are installed on the front wheels and the former are on the rear wheels. Both take the brunt of road vibrations and keep your vehicle from excessively bouncing after going over bumps because both parts have a shock absorber component. Struts have a coil spring and shock that is a part of the structure of the vehicle, but shock absorbers on the rear wheels are not a structural component, and they are used in conjunction with control arms in the back.

What are Symptoms of Bad Shocks?

Shock absorbers can go bad for several reasons, but the most likely is simply typical wear and tear. Like your brake pads and engine oil, shock absorbers were never meant to last for the lifetime of your vehicle. Usually, you can get 50,000 miles out of a set of shocks, but if you regularly drive down rough roads or off road, the excessive bumping can cause your shocks to wear out sooner. You may feel more bouncing from the rear wheels or hear a knocking sound from the back of your X5. If you examine your shocks, you might notice liquid seeping out of them. These are all signs to replace both shocks on your rear wheels.

How Much Does It Cost to Get New Shocks on a Car?

The price for new shocks on your BMW may be shocking. If you take your X5 to the dealer or a mechanic, you might spend almost $1000 to get the rear shocks replaced. For instance, the average cost to replace both 2001 BMW X5 rear shocks ranges from $552 to $910, depending on the type of shocks you need installed and the mechanic's individual labor fees, which are not standardized in the auto repair world, but if you find this price more than you're willing to pay and you're able to do some work on your X5 yourself, you can save a lot of money on fixing your BMW X5 rear suspension problems.

How to Spend Less on Shocks

It is possible to spend a lot less on your BMW X5 shocks by installing them yourself. Some mechanics charge hundreds of dollars for the labor, but you won't have to pay this if you take a DIY approach to putting new shocks on your BMW X5. To save even more money, get your parts at a lower price, and the best place to find them is at PartsGeek.com, where prices are regularly below the full list price on thousands of auto parts. You'll be able to find the shocks you need for your X5 and spend a lot less on them.

Got an exhaust gasket for an 86 Audi Quattro and I got it in the day after they sent it out! First time buying from them and so far I am pleased.
