Is It Time For 2009 Mazda CX-7 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2009 Mazda CX-7, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your CX-7 feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2009 Mazda CX-7 in for suspension and steering service. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, 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 what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Mazda CX-7’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 CX-7 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2009 Mazda CX-7’s suspension. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your CX-7’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Mazda CX-7 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2009 Mazda CX-7 suspension 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.

2009 CX-7 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 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. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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.
  • When does Mazda CX-7 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 CX-7 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Mazda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
