When To Get 2017 Nissan Altima Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2017 Nissan Altima, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Altima jolts, leans 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 2017 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 absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. 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

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2017 Nissan Altima suspension system. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2017 Nissan Altima shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, 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 smart move to get your Altima’s 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.

2017 Altima Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 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.
  • Why should my Nissan Altima get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 connect with the road how Nissan intended.
  • When should I have my Nissan Altima power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Nissan's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
