2008 Nissan Altima Maintenance and Service Schedule

Not sure when or if your Nissan Altima’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 2008 Nissan Altima Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2008 Nissan Altima, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Altima feels bouncy, pulls 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 2008 Nissan Altima in for steering and suspension repairs. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Altima suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. 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 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2008 Nissan Altima suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 getting your 2008 Nissan Altima’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Nissan Altima shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2008 Nissan Altima’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2008 Altima Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Altima's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Nissan intended.
  • Does my Nissan Altima power steering fluid need to be 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 follow Nissan service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
