1995 Pathfinder Nissan Steering & Suspension Services

1995 Nissan Pathfinder Maintenance Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Nissan Pathfinder due for service yet?

Does Your 1995 Nissan Pathfinder Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1995 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, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1995 Nissan Pathfinder in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Pathfinder suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Nissan Pathfinder suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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 1995 Nissan Pathfinder suspension system. 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 limit vibration and keep your Nissan up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Pathfinder’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Nissan Pathfinder shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1995 Nissan Pathfinder suspension 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.

1995 Pathfinder Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • 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 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 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Pathfinder is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Nissan service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
