Suspension Service & Repair for 1985 Mazda 626

Does Your 1985 Mazda 626 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1985 Mazda 626, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 626 jolts, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1985 Mazda 626 in for steering and suspension services. 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 absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 626 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 Mazda 626’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.

Mazda 626 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1985 Mazda 626 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1985 Mazda 626’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Mazda 626 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1985 Mazda 626 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.
