1989 Nissan Maxima Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1989 Nissan Maxima Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1989 Nissan Maxima, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! 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. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1989 Nissan Maxima, bring it 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Maxima suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Nissan Maxima’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.

Nissan Maxima Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 Nissan Maxima suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 getting your 1989 Nissan Maxima’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Nissan Maxima shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 Nissan Maxima’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1989 Maxima Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Maxima's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Nissan Maxima? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Nissan intended.
  • When does Nissan Maxima power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Maxima’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
