Research on Struts for BMW 318i

If the struts go bad, your BMW will not feel quite like the quality investment it did in the beginning. Struts keep your ride smooth and stable. When they wear out, it feels nothing like you're in a modern vehicle. A leaky shock or worn out spring, even a cracked bushing, can sour your day. Fortunately, replacement struts for your BMW 318i are not hard to find. They are even more affordable than many people think, since competitive online suppliers are out there selling automotive parts for less.

How to Know the BMW 318i Struts Are Bad

Suspension wear often causes lots of knocking and rattling when you go over bumps, potholes, and debris. Front strut problems can make your car nosedive when braking, and worn rear shocks can leave the rear side squatting upon acceleration. If every movement has you bouncing like crazy, you may want to look around at the best BMW shocks prices and consider replacement. The tires will bounce a lot as well. This will wear out the treads faster and cause problems with the wheels staying level and in contact with the pavement. It can also become hard to handle the car. The vehicle may shift from side to side and wind, wet pavement, and any steering motion may result in swaying that can make the vehicle hard to control. Visually, you can tell if there's a problem if the strut is cracked, bent, or leaking.

What Is the Strut Assembly?

Strut assemblies contain a shock absorber and coil spring. This added support is typically needed in the front of a car, where the engine's weight and added shocks felt in front of the vehicle come into play. The shock absorber dampens vertical motion. Its piston moves against a liquid or gas inside a cylinder to absorb each shock. A coil spring supports the car's weight and keeps its height constant. Securing the strut to the car frame is a strut mount bushing.

Do Struts Leak?

Fluid leaks from the struts is one of the common problems with automotive suspensions. Every time you drive over a bump, the strut compresses. The piston pushes against the fluid inside the strut. The forces absorbed eventually cause oil or hydraulic fluid to leak. Also, the seals can wear out, causing more extensive leaks that diminish the function of the strut. The more you drive and the rougher the roads, the sooner you'll need BMW E46 shocks and struts.

BMW Shocks and Struts Replacement Cost

Driven by parts and labor, the cost of replacing a front strut/shock absorber in a 1994 BMW 318i is $284 to $405. Both front struts and BMW E46 front shock absorbers can be $541 to $777 to replace. For a shock absorber in back, it's $717 to $253, but replacing both will set you back up to $473. If you're looking to save on E46 or BMW E36 shocks and struts, is the place to look. We have an exclusive catalog of auto parts and accessories, where we can pass on the savings of our own low operating costs. You can therefore get the struts you need so your BMW feels like new again.

1984 BMW 318i Strut Assembly

Somewhat Satisfied

The threaded portion at the top of the shaft was larger diameter than the original resulting in a nut so large a socket wouldn't fit into the recess. I had to get creative to tighten it. Otherwise it fit perfectly.
