Is It Time For 2011 Mazda CX-9 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2011 Mazda CX-9, 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-9 bounces, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2011 Mazda CX-9, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your CX-9 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, 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-9

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 2011 Mazda CX-9 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Mazda CX-9 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2011 Mazda CX-9 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.
