2020 Leaf Nissan Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2020 Nissan Leaf Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2020 Nissan Leaf, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Leaf jolts, sways 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 2020 Nissan Leaf in for steering and suspension services. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Leaf 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Nissan Leaf

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2020 Nissan Leaf suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 2020 Nissan Leaf shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Nissan Leaf shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2020 Nissan Leaf suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.
