Why does my 2000 maxima pull to the right and start shaking after 60 mi . an hour

Tire not balanced. Bearing bad. Strut bad. Alignment. An unbalanced tire can take out the strut and alignment. Which can eventually takeout the bearing.

I have a 2008 Nissan Maxima, at 70mph the rear left tire seems to have a wheel balance problem, the tire makes a funny noise and the rear end shakes. The tire is wearing uneven also. Is this a wheel...

To check and see if it is a strut problem push down on the rear of the vehicle. the car should only bounce 1 to 2 times once released go from side to side if it bounces more than 2 times that shows a worn strut. You can also jack the vehicle up and check the rear tire for play. if you have play it could be a strut or a trailing arm bushing.

I am the original owner of a base 2001 Nissan Maxima, it has 52k miles on it. Trying to figure out what needs to be done to get a few more years out of it. No problems so far, only routine stuff (oil,...

Considering the age of the car, you are on a need to fix basis. there is set guide line for front end parts wearing out or being replaced, If the struts are shot, and you replace them, It doesn't mean you have solved the problem, the whole steering linkage could be bad as well as the ball joints if it has them and anything else in there that takes the bumps. My 03 pathfinder makes an awful sound when I turn the wheel just right, I have yet to get under there to see what's wrong. The rear is a marshmallow, no shocks at all, and the tires practically rub on the wheel wells. So, It is your call. You could go ahead with the struts, then see how it goes, if it is still bad, check the linkage out see if anything is wore out. All the tie rods ends and the ball joints are suspect. You can get a bar under each tire and have someone lift up on the wheel while watching the joints move, you will be able to tell if they are bad or not. But,,, big but here, most front wheel drive cars have better front ends. Hope this helps.

Need new struts on my 97 Nissan Maxima . Do the

No, usually struts come without springs. Some aftermakets are available as complete assembly with strut, sping, and mount. This is the best way to buy if you doing them yourself. A little more expensive but you are replacing everything and will not have to take them to a shop to have spings changed over. I would not attempt to do this yourself even with rented sping compressor because it is extreamly dagerous. Strut spings can kill you, play it safe. Good Luck

1990 Nissan Maxima V6 a/t: vibration above 60 mph

Start off with a tire rotation. That should solve the problem. If problem presist the next best thing to do is have your wheel bearings checked. In order to check your wheel bearings you need to lift the car from the front (suspending the the front wheels. With both hands grab the tire on both sides and move with back and forth motions. If you find much play then you need to change your bearings. These things will cause movement at high rates of speed

Have a 2005 Maxima that shakes at the wheel at 45 mph up to 60 mph, I inspected my inner and outher tie rods and they are fine the alinement is fine, tires are new and balanced, brakes were replaced aswell...

It may be that one of your front wheel rims is slightly buckled. You can try swapping each with your spare wheel then test drive and see if this eliminates the problem.

Coil spring

may need alignment after new coil spring (and/or strut assembly)...recommend that you allow a shop to do this...if you are skilled mechanic, you can do it by scribing marks before srut removal and matching marks after strut re-installed.
