2004 Murano Nissan Steering & Suspension Services

2004 Nissan Murano Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2004 Nissan Murano suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2004 Nissan Murano Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2004 Nissan Murano, 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 Murano bounces, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2004 Nissan Murano in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Murano suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Nissan Murano’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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Nissan Murano

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2004 Nissan Murano’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Murano’s shocks and struts 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 signs of worn Nissan Murano shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2004 Nissan Murano’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

2004 Murano Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Nissan's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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 Murano? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Nissan Murano 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 Murano is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Nissan's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
