1996 BMW 750iL Problems

Alignment/Tire Wear Issues Due to Excessive Play in Rear Lower Ball Joints

The rear lower ball joints may wear causing alignment and tire wear issues as a result of the excessive play in these joints. Our technicians tell us a 4wheel alignment should be performed after ball joint replacement.

Multiple Power Steering Hoses May Simultaneously Fail

A fluid leak may develop from one or more power steering hose. When a leak is being repaired, it is not uncommon for multiple hoses to be replaced.

Front Thrust Rod Bushings May Fail

The front thrust rod bushingsalso referred to as tension strut bushingsare known to fail occasionally. The oil-filled rubber mounts weaken and crack over time, causing a mushy road feel and shuddering in the steering wheel when going over bumps.
