When To Get 2003 Nissan 350Z Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2003 Nissan 350Z, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 350Z jolts, pulls 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 2003 Nissan 350Z in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 350Z 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 Nissan 350Z’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Nissan 350Z

Your 2003 Nissan 350Z’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. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2003 Nissan 350Z’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Nissan 350Z shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 350Z’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
