Is It Time For 2009 Mazda MX-5 Miata Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2009 Mazda MX-5 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 MX-5 Miata bounces, pulls 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 2009 Mazda MX-5 Miata, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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 dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub 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 MX-5 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mazda MX-5 Miata

Your 2009 Mazda MX-5 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 limit vibration and keep your Mazda up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2009 Mazda MX-5 Miata shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Mazda MX-5 Miata shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2009 Mazda MX-5 Miata suspension 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 2009 Mazda MX-5 Miata Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my MX-5 Miata's steering and suspension?
