When To Get 2004 Mazda Miata Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2004 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. Maybe your Miata bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2004 Mazda Miata, 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle 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 your Miata steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Mazda Miata Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2004 Mazda Miata’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Miata’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Mazda Miata shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2004 Mazda Miata’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2004 Mazda Miata Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mazda's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • 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. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Mazda intended.
  • When should I have my Mazda Miata power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Miata is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Mazda's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
