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

When To Get 1992 Nissan Pathfinder Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1992 Nissan Pathfinder, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Pathfinder bounces, 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 1992 Nissan Pathfinder in for steering and suspension services. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Pathfinder steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Nissan Pathfinder

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1992 Nissan Pathfinder suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 1992 Nissan Pathfinder’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Nissan Pathfinder shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1992 Nissan Pathfinder’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1992 Nissan Pathfinder Steering & Suspension

  • 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 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 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. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way 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 optimally.
