Is It Time For 2002 Mazda 626 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2002 Mazda 626, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 626 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2002 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2002 Mazda 626 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Mazda up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2002 Mazda 626’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, 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 2002 Mazda 626 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

2002 626 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • 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. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mazda intended.
  • When should I have my Mazda 626 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 626 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Mazda's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
