Is the steering and suspension system in your Nissan Altima due for service yet?

Does Your 2004 Nissan Altima Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2004 Nissan Altima, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Altima bounces, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2004 Nissan Altima in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle 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 your Nissan Altima’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.

Nissan Altima Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2004 Nissan Altima’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2004 Nissan Altima shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Nissan Altima shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2004 Nissan Altima’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.

Questions About 2004 Nissan Altima Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Nissan's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Nissan Altima? 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 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 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
