Does Your 1986 Mazda RX-7 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1986 Mazda RX-7, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your RX-7 bounces, sways 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 1986 Mazda RX-7, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your RX-7 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 parts of your Mazda RX-7 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mazda RX-7

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1986 Mazda RX-7 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 getting your 1986 Mazda RX-7’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Mazda RX-7 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 Mazda RX-7 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
