When To Get 1998 Subaru Legacy Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1998 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 jolts, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1998 Subaru Legacy, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 Subaru Legacy’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Subaru Legacy Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1998 Subaru Legacy’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Subaru Legacy shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1998 Subaru Legacy’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1998 Subaru Legacy Steering & Suspension

  • 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Subaru Legacy? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how 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 Legacy is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Subaru's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
