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

Is It Time For 2005 Nissan Altima Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2005 Nissan Altima, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Altima jolts, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2005 Nissan Altima in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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 components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Altima steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Nissan Altima Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2005 Nissan Altima suspension system. 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 2005 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 could all be signs of worn Nissan Altima shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2005 Nissan Altima suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2005 Altima Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Nissan's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Nissan Altima? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Nissan service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
