When should you have your 2005 Subaru Legacy suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 2005 Subaru Legacy Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2005 Subaru Legacy, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Legacy feels bouncy, pulls 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 2005 Subaru Legacy in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Subaru Legacy Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2005 Subaru Legacy suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Subaru up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2005 Subaru Legacy’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Subaru Legacy shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2005 Subaru Legacy’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2005 Legacy Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Legacy's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Subaru intended.
  • Does my Subaru Legacy power steering fluid need to be 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 top it off per Subaru's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
