bouncing front suspension

Asked by Jan 22, 2016 at 02:29 AM about the 2011 Nissan Versa 1.6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2011 Nissan versa hatchback.
We've been having to replace the toees
every 6 months. We took it to the shop and
they said our alignment is still good. But the
car bounces on a smooth road. Tires start
to wear out from the inside out. And when I
hit a small bump you can hear a bang. What
kind of problem am I facing with? The shop
said something about the front suspension
but someone else is telling me the inner tie
rods. Also, if I do need parts, what company
will make me purchase the parts and be
able to send to Guam?

Check your struts. (Replaces the shock) on smaller cars

Oh man, This sounds like the front end is in need of repair. I don't understand how someone can be telling you the alignment is good with worn front end (suspension parts) and your tires wearing. Would there be a good alignment shop to go too? They could get the necessary parts to fix it, they would know how to get the parts.
