Suspension Service & Repair for 2011 Nissan Leaf

Is It Time For 2011 Nissan Leaf Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2011 Nissan Leaf, 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 Leaf bounces, drifts 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 2011 Nissan Leaf in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel 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 all of your options and the potential cost. If your Nissan Leaf’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 Leaf

Your 2011 Nissan Leaf’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2011 Nissan Leaf shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Nissan Leaf shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2011 Nissan Leaf’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 Leaf Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Nissan's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Nissan Leaf? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Nissan intended.
  • Does my Nissan Leaf 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 Leaf’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
