During the first few years you had your 1986 Nissan Maxima, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Maxima bounces, leans 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 1986 Nissan Maxima in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.
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, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 parts of your Nissan Maxima 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.
Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1986 Nissan Maxima’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1986 Nissan Maxima 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 Maxima shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 Nissan Maxima suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
