2004 Maxima Nissan Steering & Suspension Services

2004 Nissan Maxima Maintenance Schedule

Not sure when or if your Nissan Maxima’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2004 Nissan Maxima Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2004 Nissan Maxima, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. 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 2004 Nissan Maxima in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 your Nissan Maxima’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Nissan Maxima Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2004 Nissan Maxima suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 2004 Nissan Maxima shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, 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 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.

Questions About 2004 Nissan Maxima Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Nissan's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new 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. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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.
  • Does my Nissan Maxima power steering fluid need to be checked? 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.
