Question about 1997 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

I own a 1997 Nissan Maxima (43,000 miles) and it has a suspension problem. There are some squeaking sounds in the front suspension and are more notorious when the car is cold, recently I (not personally) replaced the steering system and the shock absorbers front and rear and aside from the clacking sounds, the car is very nervous at the rear end when I pass into a small bump or road irregularity (like if the tires were inflated like a baloon), so any help would be appreciated. Thank You. Carlos.

I would suggest replacing the lower control arm bushings along with the sway bar bushings (4 pcs) in the then have a mechanic jack up the back and ascertain if any looseness is detected in the rear control arm assembly

Can a shock mounting make a squeak noise when going through a dip or turning the steering wheel. shocks already tested.


There are a lot of suspension points that can develop a squeak. Look at there: Front strut tower mounts, sway bar rubber mounts(if equipped). If you recently got new tires that may be a little larger than the originals, the tire may hit suspension parts when turning. They can rub against the inner fender well plastic parts as well. Best thing to do first is get a chassis lube. If that fails to resolve the problem, then look deeper into the problem by a good mechanic.

Have a 1997 Mountaineer a the front makes this loud squeaking sound when turning/running over speed bumps or any time front suspension is working


It can be bushings in the front sway rods or the control arms. The tie-rod ends or even ball-joint sockets can make noise if they are dry.

Have a 2005 Mitsu Lancer. Having front suspension problems. Had the shocks replaced + new tierod- still when it goes over a bump- sounds like there is no/weak suspension. Have about 43,000 Miles on it...


You could change the whole thing if you wanted too but I would recommend that you go to another shop. A good mechanic should be able to locate the problem and repair it for you. Sounds to me like the dealership is trying to get more money from you than need be. I have never heard of anyone having to change out the entire front end of a car. Find someone with more knowledge.

Good Luck to you.

I have a Nissan Maxima Problem with the Nissan Maxima 1997 Maxima I have a Nissan Maxima 1997 model the tyres size are P205/65R15. My question is Would Kumho 352 with rims diameter "16 fits on them?


If your wheels are 15" (you said they are) you cannot put a 16" tire on those wheels.
If the 16" ones are on wheels you need to physically check for proper clearance and offset so that they don't interfere with suspension or body parts. If the tire height on the new tires is higher than the originals it will put additional stress on the driveline and could cause problems. (it adversely affects the mechanical advantage you get from the differential gears)
