Suspension Service & Repair for 2004 Nissan Pathfinder Armada

2004 Nissan Pathfinder Armada Maintenance Schedule

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

Does Your 2004 Nissan Pathfinder Armada Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2004 Nissan Pathfinder Armada, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Pathfinder Armada feels bouncy, leans 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 Pathfinder Armada 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Nissan Pathfinder Armada’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 Pathfinder Armada Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2004 Nissan Pathfinder Armada’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2004 Nissan Pathfinder Armada’s shocks and struts replaced 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 could all be signs of worn Nissan Pathfinder Armada shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2004 Nissan Pathfinder Armada 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.

2004 Pathfinder Armada Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Nissan's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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.
  • Why should my Nissan Pathfinder Armada get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Nissan intended.
  • When does Nissan Pathfinder Armada power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Nissan's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
