Not sure when or if your Mazda MPV’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Is It Time For 1991 Mazda MPV Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1991 Mazda MPV, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your MPV feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1991 Mazda MPV in for suspension and steering service. 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, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your MPV suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Mazda MPV suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mazda MPV Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1991 Mazda MPV’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your MPV’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Mazda MPV shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your MPV’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1991 Mazda MPV Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my MPV's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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 should my Mazda MPV get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 should I have my Mazda MPV power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Mazda's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
