Is It Time For 1990 Mazda RX-7 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1990 Mazda RX-7, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your RX-7 jolts, 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 1990 Mazda RX-7 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 parts of your Mazda RX-7 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mazda RX-7

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Mazda RX-7’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Mazda RX-7 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1990 Mazda RX-7’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1990 Mazda RX-7 Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mazda's suspension? Maintaining your tires 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? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Mazda RX-7 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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’ll top it off per Mazda's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
