1988 Pathfinder Nissan Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1988 Nissan Pathfinder Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1988 Nissan Pathfinder, 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 Pathfinder jolts, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1988 Nissan Pathfinder in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Pathfinder 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 Pathfinder 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.

Nissan Pathfinder Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 Nissan Pathfinder’s suspension. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1988 Nissan Pathfinder’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Nissan Pathfinder shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 Nissan Pathfinder suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Nissan intended.
  • Does my Nissan Pathfinder 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.
