When To Get 2007 Mazda CX-7 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2007 Mazda CX-7, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your CX-7 bounces, drifts 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 2007 Mazda CX-7 in for suspension and steering service. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 CX-7 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mazda CX-7

Your 2007 Mazda CX-7’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your CX-7’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Mazda CX-7 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2007 Mazda CX-7’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2007 CX-7 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my CX-7's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Mazda CX-7 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 right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Mazda CX-7 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your CX-7 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Mazda's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
