1986 200SX Nissan Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1986 Nissan 200SX Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1986 Nissan 200SX, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 200SX jolts, drifts 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 1986 Nissan 200SX 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, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 200SX suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Nissan 200SX suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Nissan 200SX Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1986 Nissan 200SX suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1986 Nissan 200SX shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Nissan 200SX shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 Nissan 200SX suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 1986 Nissan 200SX Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Nissan's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Nissan 200SX power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Nissan's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
