When To Get 1996 Subaru Impreza Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1996 Subaru Impreza, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Impreza bounces, sways 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 1996 Subaru Impreza in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system 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, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 Impreza 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 Impreza Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1996 Subaru Impreza’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 1996 Subaru Impreza shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Subaru Impreza shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1996 Subaru Impreza suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1996 Impreza Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact 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.
  • Why should my Subaru Impreza get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Subaru Impreza 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 Impreza is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Subaru's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
