1984 Nissan 200SX Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1984 Nissan 200SX Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1984 Nissan 200SX, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 200SX feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1984 Nissan 200SX in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 200SX suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Nissan 200SX’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Nissan 200SX Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1984 Nissan 200SX’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Nissan up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1984 Nissan 200SX’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Nissan 200SX shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1984 Nissan 200SX suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
