2001 Nissan Maxima Suspension Service & Repair

2001 Nissan Maxima Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2001 Nissan Maxima suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2001 Nissan Maxima Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2001 Nissan Maxima, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Maxima jolts, sways 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 2001 Nissan Maxima in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Maxima suspension system needs repair, 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 Maxima steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Nissan Maxima

Your 2001 Nissan Maxima’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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. But there's no set schedule for 2001 Nissan Maxima shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Nissan Maxima shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2001 Nissan Maxima’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2001 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 help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations 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 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Nissan service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
