"I bought these parts to replace the ones on my altima. I live in nyc which is notorious for potholes and bad roads. These parts didnt last a month on my car, and I dont drive crazy and I avoid potholes. as soon as my mechanic put these bloody things on they were making noise. very audible very annoying noises. Less then a month later of casual driving i went to get my inspection done. when my mechanic put my car on the lift we both saw these parts i bought BUSTED TO ALL HECK! I thought i needed a wheel alingment, when it was really due to faulty parts. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND GET MONROE PARTS. I did and have been driving smoothly ever since. Dont buy these parts! thank you and have a nice day." posted by: Officer B. on June 4, 2012

"Good purchase,but you must have the mechanical appititude and undrestanding to install this product" posted by: Happy customer on April 8, 2008

If you have been often driving your Nissan Altima over rough terrain, then your shock absorber and strut assembly are prone to premature wear. These components are crucial to the smooth handling of your sedan. Your family car doesn't have to endure the shaky, unsteady driving brought about by a defective shock absorber or misplaced strut assembly. To achieve that smooth, seamless driving experience with your Altima, you should purchase a replacement for defective car parts immediately. Early detection and replacement of broken parts can lessen driving discomfort and possible premature wear on your car's other components.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ask APW
  • How long do shock absorbers of a Nissan Altima last?
    Answer: For the front-wheel drive Nissan Altima, shock absorbers can last the car's lifetime, but due to several factors they succumb to premature wear. Such factors as mileage, driving conditions, and fluid may affect the durability of shock absorbers. Regular inspection, however, can prolong the life of these components and may contribute to the stability of the vehicle when maneuvering or cornering.
  • How much is the average price of a shock absorber and strut assembly?
    Answer: The best price of a shock absorber and strut assembly for a Nissan Altima is around $60. It is sold individually, and it depends on the location of the part that will be replaced. This product is an OE replacement and comes with a lifetime warranty. No need to prolong the agony of a worn-out shock absorber as a fresh stock can provide a smoother ride.
  • Is there a need to upgrade the shock absorber and strut assembly?
    Answer: Upgrading to premium shocks are known to give the driver several benefits such as vehicle stability, improved handling, and a smoother ride. These benefits, however, are dependent on the type of road that the vehicle is usually driven on. It is not an assurance that if the shock absorbers are upgraded that the driving quality will surely follow.
  • When should the strut assembly be replaced?
    Answer: Spring and shock failures are just some of the symptoms of a worn-out strut assembly. Testing the springs and shocks for unnecessary bounces or movements will confirm that the struts need replacement. The more obvious symptoms of mechanical failure are frequent rattling and squeaking sounds whenever the Altima is cornering, or going over bumps. Though struts can be cleaned for an immediate remedy, replacing it immediately will minimize the possibilities of affecting the other components.
