When To Get 1989 Mazda RX-7 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1989 Mazda RX-7, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your RX-7 feels bouncy, 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 1989 Mazda RX-7, bring it 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, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your RX-7 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Mazda RX-7’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mazda RX-7 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1989 Mazda RX-7’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1989 Mazda RX-7 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your 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.

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 the tires connect with the road how Mazda intended.
  • When does Mazda RX-7 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your RX-7 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Mazda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
