When To Get 1983 Mazda 626 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1983 Mazda 626, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 626 feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1983 Mazda 626 in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 parts of your Mazda 626 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mazda 626 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1983 Mazda 626 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1983 Mazda 626’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Mazda 626 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1983 Mazda 626’s 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.

Questions About 1983 Mazda 626 Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 626's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mazda 626? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Mazda 626 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 626’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Mazda's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
