Suspension Service & Repair for 1986 Nissan D21

Does Your 1986 Nissan D21 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1986 Nissan D21, 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 D21 feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1986 Nissan D21 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your D21 suspension system needs repair, 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 D21 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Nissan D21 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1986 Nissan D21’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. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your D21’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Nissan D21 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 Nissan D21 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

1986 D21 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Nissan's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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.
  • Why should my Nissan D21 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 D21 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your D21 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Nissan's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
