2005 Subaru Outback Maintenance and Service Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Subaru Outback due for service yet?

When To Get 2005 Subaru Outback Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2005 Subaru Outback, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Outback bounces, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2005 Subaru Outback, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Outback suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Subaru Outback’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, 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

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2005 Subaru Outback 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2005 Subaru Outback’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Subaru Outback shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Outback’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2005 Outback Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Outback's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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.
  • Why should my Subaru Outback get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Subaru Outback power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Outback’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Subaru service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
