Suspension Service & Repair for 1987 Subaru DL

Does Your 1987 Subaru DL Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1987 Subaru DL, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your DL bounces, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1987 Subaru DL in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Subaru DL 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.

Subaru DL Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1987 Subaru DL 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1987 Subaru DL’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Subaru DL shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 Subaru DL suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1987 Subaru DL Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Subaru's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Subaru DL get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Subaru intended.
  • When does Subaru DL 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 DL is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Subaru's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
