When To Get 2009 Nissan GT-R Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2009 Nissan GT-R, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your GT-R 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 2009 Nissan GT-R in for steering and suspension repairs. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 GT-R steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Nissan GT-R Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2009 Nissan GT-R’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Nissan up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2009 Nissan GT-R shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Nissan GT-R shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2009 Nissan GT-R’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 2009 Nissan GT-R Steering & Suspension

  • 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Nissan GT-R? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Nissan GT-R 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
