Is It Time For 1987 Mazda 626 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1987 Mazda 626, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. 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 1987 Mazda 626 in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mazda 626

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1987 Mazda 626’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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1987 Mazda 626 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Mazda 626 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1987 Mazda 626’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.
