Suspension Service & Repair for 1991 Nissan Maxima

1991 Nissan Maxima Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 1991 Nissan Maxima suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1991 Nissan Maxima Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1991 Nissan Maxima, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Maxima jolts, pulls 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 1991 Nissan Maxima 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, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1991 Nissan Maxima’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Nissan up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1991 Nissan Maxima shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Nissan Maxima shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Maxima’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1991 Nissan Maxima Steering & Suspension

  • 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 alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • 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 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Nissan's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
