Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1998 Nissan Maxima

When does Nissan recommend steering and suspension service for 1998 Nissan Maximas?

Does Your 1998 Nissan Maxima Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1998 Nissan Maxima, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Maxima jolts, sways 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 1998 Nissan Maxima in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle 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 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 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

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 Nissan Maxima suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Maxima’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Nissan Maxima shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Nissan Maxima suspension 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.

1998 Maxima Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Maxima's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Nissan Maxima? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Nissan Maxima power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few 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.
