1986 720 Nissan Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1986 Nissan 720 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1986 Nissan 720, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 720 bounces, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1986 Nissan 720 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 720 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 720’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 720

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1986 Nissan 720 suspension system. 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 limit vibration and keep your Nissan up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 720’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Nissan 720 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1986 Nissan 720’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1986 720 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Nissan's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Nissan 720 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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 should I have my Nissan 720 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 720 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Nissan service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
