Suspension Service & Repair for 1986 Subaru RX

When To Get 1986 Subaru RX Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1986 Subaru RX, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your RX feels bouncy, 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 1986 Subaru RX, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your RX suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Subaru RX’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 RX Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1986 Subaru RX’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 1986 Subaru RX shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Subaru RX shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1986 Subaru RX’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.

Questions About 1986 Subaru RX Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Subaru's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Subaru RX? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Subaru RX power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your RX is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Subaru service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
