Suspension Service & Repair for 2008 Nissan Armada

2008 Nissan Armada Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does Nissan recommend steering and suspension service for 2008 Nissan Armadas?

Does Your 2008 Nissan Armada Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2008 Nissan Armada, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Armada feels bouncy, drifts 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 Armada in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper 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 issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Nissan Armada’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 Armada Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2008 Nissan Armada’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Armada’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Nissan Armada shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 Nissan Armada 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.

2008 Armada Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Nissan's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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 Armada? 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.
  • Does my Nissan Armada 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 Armada is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
