When does Subaru recommend steering and suspension service for 1990 Subaru Legacys?

Is It Time For 1990 Subaru Legacy Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1990 Subaru Legacy, 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 Legacy bounces, sways 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 1990 Subaru Legacy in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Legacy suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Legacy steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Subaru Legacy Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Subaru Legacy’s suspension. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1990 Subaru Legacy shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Subaru Legacy shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1990 Subaru Legacy 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.

1990 Legacy Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Subaru's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Subaru Legacy get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Subaru Legacy power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Legacy’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Subaru service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
