1998 Nissan Altima Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 1998 Nissan Altima suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1998 Nissan Altima Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1998 Nissan Altima, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Altima feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1998 Nissan Altima, bring it in for suspension and steering service. 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, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Altima suspension system needs repair, 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 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.

Nissan Altima Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1998 Nissan Altima’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1998 Nissan Altima shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Nissan Altima shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Nissan Altima suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1998 Nissan Altima Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Nissan's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Nissan Altima? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Nissan Altima power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Altima’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Nissan's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
