When To Get 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2019 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, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your MX-5 Miata suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. 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.

Mazda MX-5 Miata Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2019 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Mazda MX-5 Miata shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your MX-5 Miata’s 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.

2019 MX-5 Miata Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Mazda MX-5 Miata 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. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Mazda MX-5 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Mazda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
  • What can cause my Mazda MX-5 Miata to have a bouncy ride? If it feels like you’re on a trampoline every time your MX-5 Miata goes over a bump or dip, you may have a problem with your struts or shocks. Faulty shocks and struts can’t properly absorb road bumps, leading to a bouncy ride.
  • What can cause the front end of my MX-5 Miata to dip forward when I apply the brakes? As you brake, the forward momentum of your MX-5 Miata combined with its weight sends a ton of force to its front end. A damaged or worn suspension system can cause the front end to compress and dip even further.
  • What are the signs that the shocks on my Mazda MX-5 Miata need replacing? Worn MX-5 Miata shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your MX-5 Miata might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your MX-5 Miata shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
