When To Get 1999 Mazda 626 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1999 Mazda 626, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 626 bounces, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1999 Mazda 626 in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Mazda 626 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1999 Mazda 626 suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1999 Mazda 626 shock and strut replacement 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 signs of worn Mazda 626 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 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.

1999 626 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mazda 626? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Mazda 626 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 626 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Mazda's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
