Question about 2004 Nissan Murano

Open Question

I have a 2004 Nissan Murano. The rear shocks keep sheering off.

I have a 2004 Nissan Murano. At 65,000 miles replaced the struts and shocks with top of the line Monroes. Three months later the right rear shock sheered off. A week after this the left rear shock sheered off. Two months later, the right rear shock sheered off AGAIN. Have you ever heard of anything like this, and what's wrong?

SOURCE: Nissan Suspension noise

sounds to me like your front control arm bushings are broken. have your mechanic check the bushings in rear of the control arm. the ones that are right by the 3 bolts in the control arm in rear. those bushings brake and cause play in the whole assembly, causing a rattle. Its a black round bushing about 2 inches in diamater. its most likely all separated. common problem. Have him look at your stabilizer bar links also.

I would assume your talking about the small hatch shocks right? If thats the case try your local auto store, napa, autozone, pepboys etc. they sell for about 20 each there and just go by the size of the old ones.

SOURCE: Gas or Oil shock & Struts

pressurized fluid or gas is one in the same, gas shocks give a harsh ride but better handling, standard shocks are not pressurized they are just a simple hydraulic dampener, when you go over a bump fluid is pulled back and forth through a fixed orfice, this stops spring oscillations in the suspension.

Was told i had a leak in my rear shock and yes it rides a bit rough is that the problem


Shocks/struts are key to keeping your ride in your vehicle as smooth as it can be with the bumps and dips in the road.

Is it plausible this is your problem? Yes.

Is this your problem? I don't know without looking at the vehicle itself.

But, if you notice your vehicle riding rough AND did not state this to the mechanic diagnosing your vehicle and they suggest replacement of the rear shocks, it doesn't seem someone is trying to pull the wool over your eyes in this situation.

Periodic clunck in front end


A 2003 SUV will clock in over 80,000 miles.

It's time to inspect the shocks and struts.

The periodic clunck you hear in front end can cause by


mud guard boot to metal strut body contact

worn strut center post to body of strut contact

worn rubble linkage

or combination to all of the above.


I would take the SUV to a good car wash that has under carriage cleaning.

Let the SUV dry and inspect it someone who can compress the front end.

If the front of the SUV re-bound two times then the struts will need to replace.

I would look at your Lower control arms. The part is about $200 - usually the silicone filled bushing go bad (it's pretty common) but you can't replace them they are part of the arm. I have a 2005 Murano and that was my issue. it sounds kind of like a deadened repeated thud on road imperfections. mine was less noticeable on hwy. It's annoying i know.

Right rear shock absorber detached from the top mounting point


Turns out that after 26 years and 233 thousand miles, the original strut gave up the ghost: Rust! I took the shock strut assembly out of a 'spare parts' Honda Accord I keep and replaced the broken one in the Honda I am now driving. Mechanically the car is still excellent, but the car is destined to dissolve around me! To remove the whole assembly required taking out one 14mm bolt at the bottom and three 12mm bolts at the top, some WD 40, several pieces of wood for leverage and a heavy mallet.. Since there is a heavy duty coil spring involved, one should take out the bottom bolt first and lift the bottom of the strut free from its position, ( this is where I used a long 2x4 and another piece of wood as the fulcrum point to pry the strut upward) Then undo the top 3 bolts and the whole unit falls out. You will also need to detach the brake fluid line that uses the strut itself as an anchor. The easiest way is to take the line off from the back of the brake drum housing ( 9mm nut) and remove the horseshoe clip and push the curved metal brake line through the small hole where the line is anchored to the strut. Use care as you will need to reattach the brake line again after installing the next shock strut. (Coil spring compression tool required) Needless to say, you will need to jack the car up and remove the rear tire first to access the whole thing.

Replacement shocks breaking and leaking. I am on 4th set now


Weak springs, or were they changed? You can change all the shocks you want but if springs are too weak, they will prematurely blow.

Replacement shocks and struts


Check out autopartswarehouse they list front and rear KYB product. Not much out there, probably because of the year of the Murano, not too many people replacing shocks/struts yet, there will be much more available in a couple of years. I had to search for some time to find something.
