When To Get 1994 Mazda Protege Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1994 Mazda Protege, 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 Protege bounces, 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 1994 Mazda Protege in for suspension and steering service. 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, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Protege 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 Protege steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mazda Protege Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1994 Mazda Protege’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Protege’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Mazda Protege shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1994 Mazda Protege’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1994 Protege Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Protege's steering and 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 Protege get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mazda intended.
  • When should I have my Mazda Protege power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Protege’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Mazda's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
