Is It Time For 2003 Nissan Altima Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2003 Nissan Altima, 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 Altima jolts, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2003 Nissan Altima, bring it in for suspension and steering service. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 Altima 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 Altima Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2003 Nissan Altima’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Nissan up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2003 Nissan Altima shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Nissan Altima shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2003 Nissan Altima suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 2003 Nissan Altima Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Altima's steering and 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.
  • 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Nissan intended.
  • When should I have my Nissan Altima power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Altima’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Nissan's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
