Does Your 1998 Mazda B3000 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1998 Mazda B3000, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your B3000 bounces, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1998 Mazda B3000 in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Mazda B3000 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 B3000 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 Mazda B3000 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1998 Mazda B3000 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Mazda B3000 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1998 Mazda B3000’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1998 B3000 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 B3000? 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 the tires connect with the road how Mazda intended.
  • Does my Mazda B3000 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your B3000 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Mazda's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
