"I bought complete sets and I really like it. It gives me smooth ride and it could be better but not too bad for the price. I do not know why some people are condemning this products.I will advice you to try it for yourself" posted by: ola on June 16, 2014

"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 view all 3 reviews

Without the shock absorber and strut assembly, smooth driving with your Nissan Maxima is impossible. Both parts are included in the suspension system, which takes in the impact that your tires encounter when driving. The assembly absorbs the force created by uneven roadways or rocky terrains so you would not have that jack hammer experience when cruising. Moreover, faulty parts may cause extreme jerking or even nose-diving when you tap the brakes. A bouncing car because of a faulty shock absorber and strut assembly is different from a low-rider experience. Unless you want that bouncy and bumpy ride, replace your Nissan Maxima's fading dampers with a new and efficient shock absorber and strut assembly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ask APW
  • How does one maintain the Nissan Maxima's shock and strut assembly and when is the time to replace them?
    Answer: The best option in maintenance is always vigilance. The best way to prolong the shock absorber and strut assembly's lifespan is to constantly monitor the terrain. Additionally, be wary of road dents and holes. Also, there are several signs that tell when it is already time to buy new parts. For instance, when pressing the brakes for an immediate stop and the front end of the Nissan Maxima wobbles, then it may probably be time to buy a new shock absorber and strut assembly.
  • How often should the shock absorber and strut assembly of a Nissan Maxima be replaced?
    Answer: There is no definite schedule in changing the dampers because every Nissan Maxima owner encounters different kinds of terrain. It is largely dependent on how much damage the suspension system is taking on a day to day basis. Experts suggest that the Nissan Maxima should reach 50,000 miles first before the assembly wears out, but it may also take less if the automobile is driven on rocky and uneven terrain and more if it is driven mostly on smooth roadways.
  • What are the factors that affect the longevity of Nissan Maxima's shock absorbers?
    Answer: Like any other car part, there is no such thing as 100% durability. Factors to be cautious about include: how much damage the car tires are receiving, how often these damages are being dealt, how much damage is dealt each time, how do they hold up to the weather, and what is one doing to maintain them. The constant damage the absorber takes causes it to fade and wear out. One can prolong its lifespan by constantly monitoring the said factors, but there will always be a point when there is a need to change the assembly.
