When does Nissan recommend steering and suspension service for 1991 Nissan Pathfinders?

Does Your 1991 Nissan Pathfinder Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1991 Nissan Pathfinder, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Pathfinder feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1991 Nissan Pathfinder, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel 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 parts of your Nissan Pathfinder suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Nissan Pathfinder

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1991 Nissan Pathfinder suspension system. 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 1991 Nissan Pathfinder shock and strut replacement 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. It’s a good idea to have your 1991 Nissan Pathfinder’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 1991 Nissan Pathfinder Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Pathfinder's steering and 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Nissan Pathfinder? 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 the tires connect with the road how Nissan intended.
  • When should I have my Nissan Pathfinder power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Nissan service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
