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

Is It Time For 2018 Nissan Altima Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2018 Nissan Altima, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Altima bounces, leans 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 2018 Nissan Altima, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 parts of your Nissan Altima suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 Nissan Altima’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 2018 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 an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Nissan Altima shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2018 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.

2018 Altima Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Nissan's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • 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. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire 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 checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Altima’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
