Suspension Service & Repair for 2017 Nissan Leaf

Is It Time For 2017 Nissan Leaf Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2017 Nissan Leaf, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Leaf feels bouncy, sways 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 2017 Nissan Leaf 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Leaf suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Nissan Leaf suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Nissan Leaf Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2017 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. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2017 Nissan Leaf shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Nissan Leaf shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2017 Nissan Leaf suspension 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.

2017 Leaf Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact 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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Nissan Leaf? 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 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 inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
