Suspension Service & Repair for 1988 Mazda RX-7

When To Get 1988 Mazda RX-7 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1988 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, drifts 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 1988 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, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 Mazda RX-7’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Mazda RX-7 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 Mazda RX-7’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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your RX-7’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Mazda RX-7 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1988 Mazda RX-7’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
