1989 Nissan D21 Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1989 Nissan D21 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1989 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. Maybe your D21 bounces, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1989 Nissan D21 in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Nissan D21’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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Nissan D21

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 Nissan D21 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1989 Nissan D21’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Nissan D21 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your D21’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.

1989 D21 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my D21's steering and 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.
  • Why should my Nissan D21 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Nissan intended.
  • Does my Nissan D21 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your D21 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
