When does Subaru recommend steering and suspension service for 2000 Subaru Foresters?

Is It Time For 2000 Subaru Forester Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2000 Subaru Forester, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Forester feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2000 Subaru Forester 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 absorbers, damper 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 Forester suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Subaru Forester’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Subaru Forester Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2000 Subaru Forester’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 limit vibration and keep your Subaru up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2000 Subaru Forester shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Subaru Forester shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2000 Subaru Forester’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2000 Subaru Forester Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Subaru's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Subaru Forester 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 right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Subaru Forester power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Forester is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Subaru's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
