Is It Time For 1996 Mazda B4000 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1996 Mazda B4000, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your B4000 jolts, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1996 Mazda B4000, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your B4000 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Mazda B4000 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 B4000 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 Mazda B4000’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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1996 Mazda B4000’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Mazda B4000 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1996 Mazda B4000 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1996 Mazda B4000 Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my B4000's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Mazda B4000 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mazda intended.
  • When does Mazda B4000 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’ll top it off per Mazda's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
