Suspension Service & Repair for 2002 Nissan Pathfinder

2002 Nissan Pathfinder Maintenance and Service Schedule

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

Does Your 2002 Nissan Pathfinder Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2002 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, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2002 Nissan Pathfinder, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 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 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2002 Nissan Pathfinder suspension system. 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 2002 Nissan Pathfinder’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Nissan Pathfinder shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2002 Nissan Pathfinder suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

Questions About 2002 Nissan Pathfinder Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Pathfinder's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Nissan Pathfinder? 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 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 top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
