2007 Forester Subaru Steering & Suspension Services

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2007 Subaru Forester

Is the steering and suspension system in your Subaru Forester due for service yet?

Does Your 2007 Subaru Forester Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2007 Subaru Forester, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Forester feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2007 Subaru Forester, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Subaru Forester suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Subaru Forester

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2007 Subaru Forester suspension system. 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 getting your 2007 Subaru Forester’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Subaru Forester shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2007 Subaru Forester suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2007 Forester Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Subaru's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Subaru Forester? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Subaru intended.
  • When should I have my Subaru Forester power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Forester is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Subaru service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
