Is It Time For 2017 Subaru Forester Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2017 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, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2017 Subaru Forester in for steering and suspension services. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Forester steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Subaru Forester Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2017 Subaru Forester’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2017 Subaru Forester shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Subaru Forester shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2017 Subaru Forester suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 2017 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 alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Subaru Forester? 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 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 can fill it per Subaru's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
