When does Nissan recommend steering and suspension service for 1994 Nissan Altimas?

Is It Time For 1994 Nissan Altima Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1994 Nissan Altima, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Altima bounces, sways 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 1994 Nissan Altima 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Nissan Altima 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Nissan Altima

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1994 Nissan Altima suspension system. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Altima’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Nissan Altima shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1994 Nissan Altima suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1994 Altima Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Nissan's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Nissan Altima 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Nissan Altima power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Altima is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Nissan service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
