1996 Nissan 300ZX Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 1996 Nissan 300ZX suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1996 Nissan 300ZX Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1996 Nissan 300ZX, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 300ZX bounces, leans 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 1996 Nissan 300ZX in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 300ZX 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.

Nissan 300ZX Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1996 Nissan 300ZX’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1996 Nissan 300ZX shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Nissan 300ZX shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 300ZX’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1996 300ZX Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 300ZX's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Nissan 300ZX? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Nissan intended.
  • When does Nissan 300ZX power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 300ZX’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
