"what a great way to go. One piece less labor easy to install" posted by: Rick on December 3, 2013

Unless you want your Nissan Sentra to look like a malfunctioning low rider, then having well-conditioned shock absorbers and strut assemblies should be a priority. With these assemblies, your auto is able to endure bumpy rides while allowing you a smooth and comfortable traveling anywhere you go. Not only that, these parts provide more control and handling precisions for your Sentra. So, if you find abnormal jerking, bouncing, and even nose diving every time you hit the brakes, then you might have a worn out assembly. If so, replace the stock parts with new ones for an easy and trouble-free ride.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ask APW
  • Lately, the Nissan Sentra runs a bit wobbly on the road. Is there an easy and cheap way to diagnose if the Sentra's shock absorbers and strut assemblies are working fine?
    Answer: For a quick, cheap, and easy diagnosis for Nissan Sentra owners, the bounce test may be performed. This is an easy process that involves only the pushing and pulling of one corner of the auto's body. By letting the car bounce and observing the results, the owner can tell if there is a faulty assembly. If the car bounces only once or twice, then the assemblies are in good condition. However, if the Sentra keeps on bouncing up and down, then there's a great chance that the assemblies are already worn out. If so, the Sentra owner should visit a car shop right away.
  • Do monotube designs on the Nissan Sentra's shock absorbers provide a significant advantage over the twin tube designs?
    Answer: Generally, monotube designs are better than the conventional twin tube types because of factors that include side-load durability, heat transfer, and higher piston rigidity. Unlike the traditional twin tubes that employ a thinner body, the monotube types have increased diameter and surface area to take in greater side-loads. Not only that, the monotube designs also encase the piston rod completely, so the rigidity is reinforced. This also increases the lifespan of the shock absorber. While these designs provide more durable absorbers, they also allow the efficient heat dissipation. Unlike the twin tubes that trap the heat within the shock body, the new design offers a mechanism that allows excessive heat to transfer to the outer surface, so it can dissipate more effectively.
  • How much does a typical shock absorber and strut assembly replacement cost on the Nissan Sentra?
    Answer: For DIYers, a standard shock absorber may cost 30-100USD each. So, it would cost around 120-400USD to replace all four shocks. Additionally, replacing the struts may cost around 300-1000USD. However, when taken to a mechanic, the replacement fee may reach 220-900USD range for the labor alone.
