1996 Nissan Pickup Maintenance and Service Schedule

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

Is It Time For 1996 Nissan Pickup Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1996 Nissan Pickup, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Pickup jolts, 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 1996 Nissan Pickup in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 your Nissan Pickup’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, 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 Pickup

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1996 Nissan Pickup 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Pickup’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Nissan Pickup shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Pickup’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1996 Nissan Pickup Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Pickup's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Nissan Pickup? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Nissan intended.
  • When does Nissan Pickup 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 Pickup is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Nissan service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
