2016 GT-R Nissan Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 2016 Nissan GT-R Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2016 Nissan GT-R, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your GT-R jolts, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2016 Nissan GT-R in for steering and suspension repairs. 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Nissan GT-R’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Nissan GT-R

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2016 Nissan GT-R suspension system. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2016 Nissan GT-R’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Nissan GT-R shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your GT-R’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.

2016 GT-R Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my GT-R's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Nissan GT-R? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Nissan GT-R power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your GT-R’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
