1989 Subaru DL Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1989 Subaru DL Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1989 Subaru DL, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your DL bounces, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1989 Subaru DL in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Subaru DL suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Subaru DL Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1989 Subaru DL’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 Subaru DL shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Subaru DL shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 Subaru DL’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1989 Subaru DL Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Subaru's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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. 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.
  • Does my Subaru DL power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your DL’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Subaru's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
