1983 200SX Nissan Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1983 Nissan 200SX Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1983 Nissan 200SX, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 200SX feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1983 Nissan 200SX, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 200SX suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Nissan 200SX suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Nissan 200SX Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1983 Nissan 200SX suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Nissan up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 200SX’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Nissan 200SX shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 200SX’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1983 Nissan 200SX Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Nissan's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Nissan 200SX? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Nissan intended.
  • When should I have my Nissan 200SX power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 200SX is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Nissan's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
