1990 Mazda Miata Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 1990 Mazda Miata suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1990 Mazda Miata Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1990 Mazda Miata, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Miata feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1990 Mazda Miata in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. 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 parts of your Mazda Miata suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mazda Miata Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Mazda Miata’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. 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 Miata’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Mazda Miata shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1990 Mazda Miata’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.

1990 Miata Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Miata's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mazda Miata? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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 Miata power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Miata is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Mazda's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
