2011 Nissan GT-R Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 2011 Nissan GT-R Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2011 Nissan GT-R, 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 GT-R feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2011 Nissan GT-R in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your GT-R 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 GT-R steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Nissan GT-R Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2011 Nissan GT-R suspension system. 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 GT-R’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Nissan GT-R shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2011 Nissan GT-R suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 2011 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 let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Nissan intended.
  • When does Nissan GT-R power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your GT-R’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Nissan's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
