2006 Nissan 350Z Suspension Service & Repair

2006 Nissan 350Z Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does Nissan recommend steering and suspension service for 2006 Nissan 350Zs?

Does Your 2006 Nissan 350Z Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2006 Nissan 350Z, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 350Z feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2006 Nissan 350Z in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 350Z 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 350Z Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2006 Nissan 350Z’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 350Z’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Nissan 350Z shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2006 Nissan 350Z suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2006 350Z Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 350Z's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Nissan 350Z get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 come into contact with the road in the way Nissan intended.
  • When should I have my Nissan 350Z power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 350Z’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Nissan service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
