Suspension Service & Repair for 1989 Nissan 240SX

Is It Time For 1989 Nissan 240SX Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1989 Nissan 240SX, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 240SX bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 Nissan 240SX in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 240SX 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 parts of your Nissan 240SX 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Nissan 240SX

Your 1989 Nissan 240SX’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1989 Nissan 240SX shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Nissan 240SX shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 240SX’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 240SX's steering and suspension?

Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Nissan intended.
  • When should I have my Nissan 240SX power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Nissan's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
