1996 Nissan Maxima Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 1996 Nissan Maxima suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 1996 Nissan Maxima Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1996 Nissan Maxima, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Maxima feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1996 Nissan Maxima in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Nissan Maxima suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Nissan Maxima Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1996 Nissan Maxima suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1996 Nissan Maxima shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Nissan Maxima shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 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.

1996 Maxima Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Maxima's steering and 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.
  • Why should my Nissan Maxima get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Nissan intended.
  • Does my Nissan Maxima power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Maxima’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Nissan service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
