Does Your 1987 Mazda RX-7 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1987 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 jolts, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1987 Mazda RX-7 in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. 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.

Mazda RX-7 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1987 Mazda RX-7’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. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your RX-7’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Mazda RX-7 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your RX-7’s 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.

1987 RX-7 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my RX-7'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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mazda RX-7? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Mazda RX-7 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your RX-7’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Mazda's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
