Suspension Service & Repair for 2010 Nissan Altima

When To Get 2010 Nissan Altima Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2010 Nissan Altima, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Altima bounces, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2010 Nissan Altima in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Altima suspension system needs repair, 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 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2010 Nissan Altima’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Altima’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Nissan Altima shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2010 Nissan Altima suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
