1988 929 Mazda Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1988 Mazda 929 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1988 Mazda 929, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 929 jolts, 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 1988 Mazda 929 in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 your Mazda 929’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 929 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 Mazda 929’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 limit vibration and keep your Mazda up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1988 Mazda 929 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Mazda 929 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 929’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1988 929 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mazda's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Mazda 929 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 929 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Mazda's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
