2011 Impreza Subaru Steering & Suspension Services

2011 Subaru Impreza Maintenance Schedule

When does Subaru recommend steering and suspension service for 2011 Subaru Imprezas?

Does Your 2011 Subaru Impreza Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2011 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. Perhaps your Impreza feels bouncy, drifts 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 2011 Subaru Impreza in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 your Impreza 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Subaru Impreza

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2011 Subaru Impreza’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2011 Subaru Impreza’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Subaru Impreza shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2011 Subaru Impreza suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2011 Impreza Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Impreza's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Subaru Impreza get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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.
  • Does my Subaru Impreza power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Impreza’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Subaru service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
