My air springs are original at 204 k mi.

I replaced all the ball jointed parts within the past year but not the shocks.

Ok, that’s encouraging. What about your struts? I have air at the rear and struts at the front.

oops, you mentioned your shocks already. Surely, struts must have a certain life.

Original struts. Steering rack needs replacement and I might have a worn bearing pad on the top of one strut.

I might get that all checked soon. On another matter, I like the performance but still miss the comfort suspension of my previos X5. It was a comfortable ride.
