    hi may i suggest you check the suspension coils sound like they are either worne ? or brokenon one coil ? also recheck the shocks are correct length for your van ? you could visit dealer for colour coding/part numbers for suspension coils +shocks if ok? are correct for you van ? especially ifyou are not 1st owner can you confirm whether this fault has occured suddenly ? or over a period ?

Air suspension not working

not sure on model but if there is a leak one of the hoses for the shockers will have split or have holes in them will have to be checked to find out where the leak is possibly near to where the hose enters the shocker or a junction box of sorts not sure but taking each wheel of in turn an listening for leaking air will give you a clue also make sure that the pump for the system is working but as stated not sure on model from uk hope this helps ivan

Front suspenion. I'm getting a lot of loud creaking when going over bumps and turning corners. I know it's not the C.V. joints. I tried to lube but there are no fitings. Is there a way to lube this...


I think the front axles have worned out due to which it makes noise while taking a turn around.

and also get the shockers checked due to which it squeeks while on move.

Front suspension bottoms out after new shockers were fitted on Nissan navara

either you fitted the wrong length shockers or they are way too soft.(the springs give you the ride hight,the shockers stop bounce....)so you have too much travel,could also be springs nackered.if it bottomed out before.
