2006 Altima Nissan Steering & Suspension Services

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2006 Nissan Altima

When should you have your 2006 Nissan Altima suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2006 Nissan Altima Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2006 Nissan Altima, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Altima jolts, drifts 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 2006 Nissan Altima, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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.

Nissan Altima Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2006 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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2006 Nissan Altima’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Nissan Altima shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2006 Nissan Altima suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2006 Altima Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Nissan Altima? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires 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 inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Altima’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
