Suspension Service & Repair for 2005 Mazda 6

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2005 Mazda 6

When should you have your 2005 Mazda 6 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2005 Mazda 6 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2005 Mazda 6, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 6 jolts, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2005 Mazda 6 in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 6 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mazda 6’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mazda 6

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2005 Mazda 6 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. 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 6’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Mazda 6 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2005 Mazda 6 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2005 6 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Mazda's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mazda 6? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Mazda 6 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 6’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Mazda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
