Is It Time For 2002 Nissan Maxima Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2002 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 jolts, drifts 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 2002 Nissan Maxima in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 Nissan Maxima’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Nissan Maxima Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2002 Nissan Maxima’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2002 Nissan Maxima’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Nissan Maxima shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2002 Nissan Maxima suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

Questions About 2002 Nissan Maxima Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Nissan's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • 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 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 top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
