2007 RX-8 Mazda Steering & Suspension Services

2007 Mazda RX-8 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does Mazda recommend steering and suspension service for 2007 Mazda RX-8s?

Does Your 2007 Mazda RX-8 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2007 Mazda RX-8, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your RX-8 jolts, pulls 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 2007 Mazda RX-8 in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your RX-8 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 RX-8 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mazda RX-8 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2007 Mazda RX-8 suspension system. 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. But there's no set schedule for 2007 Mazda RX-8 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Mazda RX-8 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2007 Mazda RX-8 suspension 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.

Questions About 2007 Mazda RX-8 Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my RX-8's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Mazda RX-8 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Mazda RX-8 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your RX-8 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Mazda's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
