Is It Time For 2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your MX-5 Miata feels bouncy, sways 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 2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mazda MX-5 Miata’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mazda MX-5 Miata Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Mazda MX-5 Miata shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my MX-5 Miata's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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 MX-5 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. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Mazda intended.
  • When should I have my Mazda MX-5 Miata power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your MX-5 Miata is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Mazda's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
