Suspension Service & Repair for 1989 Nissan 300ZX

Is It Time For 1989 Nissan 300ZX Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1989 Nissan 300ZX, 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 300ZX jolts, sways 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 1989 Nissan 300ZX, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 300ZX suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 300ZX steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Nissan 300ZX Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1989 Nissan 300ZX’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 300ZX’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Nissan 300ZX shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 Nissan 300ZX’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1989 300ZX Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Nissan's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Nissan 300ZX? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • 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’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Nissan's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
