Suspension Service & Repair for 2011 Nissan Frontier

Is It Time For 2011 Nissan Frontier Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2011 Nissan Frontier, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Frontier feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2011 Nissan Frontier in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Frontier suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Nissan Frontier’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Nissan Frontier Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2011 Nissan Frontier’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. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Frontier’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Nissan Frontier shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Frontier’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2011 Frontier 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 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Nissan Frontier? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Nissan Frontier power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Frontier is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Nissan service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
