Is It Time For 2001 Subaru Outback Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2001 Subaru Outback, 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 Outback bounces, drifts 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 2001 Subaru Outback in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 Outback 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 Outback Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2001 Subaru Outback’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 Outback’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Subaru Outback shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2001 Subaru Outback suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2001 Outback Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Subaru's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 Outback 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Subaru intended.
  • Does my Subaru Outback 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Subaru's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
