Is It Time For 1996 Mazda B2300 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1996 Mazda B2300, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your B2300 feels bouncy, 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 1996 Mazda B2300 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mazda B2300’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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mazda B2300

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 Mazda B2300’s suspension. 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 limit vibration and keep your Mazda up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1996 Mazda B2300 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Mazda B2300 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1996 Mazda B2300 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1996 B2300 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my B2300's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mazda B2300? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mazda intended.
  • When does Mazda B2300 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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.
