Is It Time For 2003 Mazda Miata Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2003 Mazda Miata, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Miata jolts, 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 2003 Mazda Miata, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mazda Miata’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, 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 2003 Mazda Miata’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2003 Mazda Miata’s shocks and struts replaced 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 Miata shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2003 Mazda Miata suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2003 Miata Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Mazda's suspension? Maintaining your tires 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 Miata 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how 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 ensure proper suspension operation.
