1983 RX-7 Mazda Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1983 Mazda RX-7 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1983 Mazda RX-7, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your RX-7 jolts, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1983 Mazda RX-7, bring it 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your RX-7 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mazda RX-7 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1983 Mazda RX-7 suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 1983 Mazda RX-7 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Mazda RX-7 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1983 Mazda RX-7’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 1983 Mazda RX-7 Steering & Suspension

  • 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 alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mazda RX-7? 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 does Mazda RX-7 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your RX-7 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Mazda's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
