When you first bought your 1986 Mazda 323, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 323 bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1986 Mazda 323 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.
We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 323 suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Mazda 323’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.
Your 1986 Mazda 323’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Mazda up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 323’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Mazda 323 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1986 Mazda 323’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
