Suspension Service & Repair for 1988 Subaru RX

Is It Time For 1988 Subaru RX Suspension Service?

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.

Subaru RX Shock & Strut Replacement Services

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.

Questions About 1988 Subaru RX Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Subaru's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 should my Subaru RX 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.
  • Does my Subaru RX 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 RX is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Subaru's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
