Suspension Service & Repair for 2004 Nissan Pathfinder

2004 Nissan Pathfinder Maintenance and Service Schedule

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

Is It Time For 2004 Nissan Pathfinder Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2004 Nissan Pathfinder, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Pathfinder feels bouncy, drifts 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 2004 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. 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.

Nissan Pathfinder Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2004 Nissan Pathfinder suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. 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 affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Nissan Pathfinder shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2004 Nissan Pathfinder’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2004 Pathfinder Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Pathfinder's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Nissan Pathfinder power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Pathfinder’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Nissan service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
