Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2009 Subaru Legacy

When does Subaru recommend steering and suspension service for 2009 Subaru Legacys?

Is It Time For 2009 Subaru Legacy Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2009 Subaru Legacy, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Legacy jolts, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2009 Subaru Legacy in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 parts of your Subaru Legacy suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Subaru Legacy Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2009 Subaru Legacy suspension system. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2009 Subaru Legacy’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Subaru Legacy shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2009 Subaru Legacy suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 2009 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 alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Subaru Legacy get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Subaru intended.
  • When should I have my Subaru Legacy power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Subaru service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
