When you first drove your 1988 Subaru RX, 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 RX jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1988 Subaru RX in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.
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, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 RX suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.
Your 1988 Subaru RX’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1988 Subaru RX shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Subaru RX shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 Subaru RX suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
