1987 200SX Nissan Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1987 Nissan 200SX Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1987 Nissan 200SX, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 200SX bounces, leans 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 1987 Nissan 200SX, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 200SX steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Nissan 200SX Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1987 Nissan 200SX’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1987 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 forward and backward can all point to issues with your Nissan 200SX shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 Nissan 200SX suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
