Research on Shock Absorber for Nissan Frontier

The Nissan Frontier maintains a solid reputation with drivers who don't require the heavier towing and hauling capacities of a full-size pickup. Modern Frontiers are bigger and more powerful than the earlier models, and at this point the Frontier has evolved into more of a midsize pickup than a compact truck. Anyone wanting either a simple work truck or an off-road recreational vehicle in a reasonably sized package should be happy with what the Nissan Frontier has to offer.

What is a shock absorber?

The role of the shock absorber is to sustain perpetual contact between the car's tires and the road, while helping to provide optimum grip when cornering and braking. Shock absorbers are part of the suspension system, so if the shocks are worn, the vehicle's ride and comfort is compromised. The mechanics of a shock absorber all follow the same principle of controlling wheel movement by forcing oil through small holes, with the size of these holes determined by the characteristics of each vehicle.

What are the dangers of worn shock absorbers?

Reduced braking efficiency, as well as reduced efficiency of Anti-Lock Braking Systems and Electronic Stability Control. Increased risk of skidding on wet surfaces, and less control when cornering or caught in a cross wind. Increased wear of tires and other suspension components, as well as increased passenger discomfort.

Why is it important to check your shocks?

The performance of a shock absorber deteriorates gradually and imperceptibly over time, during which the driver unconsciously compensates for the wear by adapting his driving style to the perils of diminished control. Worn shock absorbers can be recognized by a more accentuated load shift when cornering, poorer handling on uneven road surfaces and a sloppy suspension. Shock absorbers should be checked annually or every 12,000 miles by a qualified mechanic. This allows sufficient time to take action to ensure the safety of the driver, their passengers and other motorists is maintained. If the car's shocks do need replacing, it is important that they are replaced in pairs so that there is an even balance on both sides of the car.

What are the signs that say it is time for shock absorber replacement?

Worn shock absorbers can increase your stopping distance by up to 20%. As you increase your travelling speed this will also increase the distance it takes your vehicle to completely stop. This 20% extra distance can be enough to cause a fatal incident. Vibrations through the steering wheel as you're driving indicate that your tires are not in stable contact with the road, as are bald patches or uneven wear on your tires. Sliding or veering across the road in mildly windy weather is a sign of worn shock absorbers, as is rattling across uneven surfaces. Along with an unpleasant ride, this rocking and rolling can be putting unwanted pressure on other car components.

What is the Nissan Frontier shock absorber replacement cost?

PartsGeek prices Monro-Matic shock absorbers for the years 2000 and 2002 Nissan Frontier, for both front and rear on 4wd models at $16.99 each, while other outlets charge an average of $35-$80 per item.

The product functions fine, but I was expecting the shock to be the same one pictured above. In the description of the shocks there was a note about the white shocks were the old style and the grey/silver ones had replaced them. When I opened the package the shocks were black. So what did I get? I'm still not sure because I don't see the same part number on the web site - 2004 frontier kyb shock absorber
