WAT

Try 2,983 pounds. Your Nissan does not weigh as much as my Blazer. It has no frame.

Try a new set of struts it's way past due and probably why it's really soft.

Yeah that's strange. A guy i know has that gen Altima, i think a 2.5S, and the suspension on that is stiff as a steel rod. Rather uncomfortable.

He should look into struts also It probably was a bent one not allowing full movement.

Nice and soft? I'd leave it alone if it were mine. I like the nice, soft, plushy ride of my old Ford for everyday driving. I can hit huge train tracks and hardly feel them in the cab.

My rigs:

1985 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci OHV inline six | 4-speed OD manual | 310K | No power brakes | Running 100% - It hasn't driven this good in 15 years!

1984 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci six | granny four | 3.55 rear end | 210K | Brakes shot. Rear drums are doing most of the work. Not fit to drive due to that.
1997 Ford Explorer XLT | 4.0L Vulcan V6 | 5-speed automatic | shift-on-the-fly 4WD | 210,000 miles | Running 95% - Needs brakes on all four corners + bald tires
1989 Ford F150 | 300cid six...again | 5-speed | 4x4 | 160K | Needs brakes done as well. Oi!
