When you first drove your 2004 Mazda RX-8, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your RX-8 bounces, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2004 Mazda RX-8 in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.
The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your RX-8 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Mazda RX-8 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.
Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2004 Mazda RX-8’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. But there's no set schedule for 2004 Mazda RX-8 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Mazda RX-8 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your RX-8’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
