Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2017 Subaru WRX STI

Not sure when or if your Subaru WRX STI’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2017 Subaru WRX STI Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2017 Subaru WRX STI, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your WRX STI jolts, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2017 Subaru WRX STI in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your WRX STI suspension system needs repair, 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 WRX STI 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 WRX STI Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2017 Subaru WRX STI’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2017 Subaru WRX STI’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Subaru WRX STI shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2017 Subaru WRX STI suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

2017 WRX STI Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my WRX STI'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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Subaru WRX STI? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Subaru intended.
  • When does Subaru WRX STI power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your WRX STI is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Subaru service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
