1983 Nissan 280ZX Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1983 Nissan 280ZX Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1983 Nissan 280ZX, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 280ZX feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1983 Nissan 280ZX, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, 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 parts of your Nissan 280ZX suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Nissan 280ZX Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1983 Nissan 280ZX suspension system. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1983 Nissan 280ZX shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Nissan 280ZX shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 280ZX’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
