When does Mazda recommend steering and suspension service for 2008 Mazda 6s?

Is It Time For 2008 Mazda 6 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2008 Mazda 6, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 6 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2008 Mazda 6, bring it in for suspension and steering service. 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, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 6 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 6 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mazda 6

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2008 Mazda 6’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Mazda up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2008 Mazda 6 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Mazda 6 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 Mazda 6 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2008 6 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 6's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Mazda 6 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mazda intended.
  • Does my Mazda 6 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 6 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Mazda's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
