When To Get 1997 Mazda Miata Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1997 Mazda Miata, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Miata feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1997 Mazda Miata 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, 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 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 Miata steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mazda Miata

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1997 Mazda Miata’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 1997 Mazda Miata’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Mazda Miata shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Miata’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1997 Mazda Miata Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Mazda's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Mazda Miata get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mazda intended.
  • When should I have my Mazda Miata power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Miata’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Mazda's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
