1994 Subaru Legacy Suspension Service & Repair

1994 Subaru Legacy Maintenance Schedule

Not sure when or if your Subaru Legacy’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Is It Time For 1994 Subaru Legacy Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1994 Subaru Legacy, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Legacy feels bouncy, sways 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 1994 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Legacy suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Legacy 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 Legacy Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1994 Subaru Legacy’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 Legacy’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Subaru Legacy shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1994 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.

1994 Legacy Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 let you know when it's time to replace your 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 Legacy? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Subaru intended.
  • When does Subaru Legacy power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Subaru's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
