2019 Subaru Forester Suspension Service & Repair

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2019 Subaru Forester

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

Does Your 2019 Subaru Forester Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2019 Subaru Forester, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Forester feels bouncy, leans 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 2019 Subaru Forester in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 Forester steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Subaru Forester Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2019 Subaru Forester suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Forester’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Subaru Forester shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2019 Subaru Forester 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.

2019 Forester Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Subaru Forester? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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.
  • When does Subaru Forester power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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 follow Subaru service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
