1985 Nissan Pulsar NX Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1985 Nissan Pulsar NX Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1985 Nissan Pulsar NX, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Pulsar NX jolts, pulls 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 1985 Nissan Pulsar NX in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 Pulsar NX 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 Pulsar NX Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1985 Nissan Pulsar NX 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 Pulsar NX’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Nissan Pulsar NX shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Pulsar NX’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1985 Pulsar NX Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Nissan's suspension? Maintaining your tires 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Nissan Pulsar NX? 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.
  • Does my Nissan Pulsar NX power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Pulsar NX’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
