Suspension Service & Repair for 1984 Nissan 300ZX

Does Your 1984 Nissan 300ZX Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1984 Nissan 300ZX, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 300ZX feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1984 Nissan 300ZX 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Nissan 300ZX’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Nissan 300ZX

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1984 Nissan 300ZX’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 1984 Nissan 300ZX shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Nissan 300ZX shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 300ZX’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1984 Nissan 300ZX Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Nissan's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Nissan 300ZX get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 300ZX power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 300ZX is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
