Is It Time For 2018 Subaru WRX Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2018 Subaru WRX, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your WRX bounces, 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 2018 Subaru WRX in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your WRX 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 WRX’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Subaru WRX

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 Subaru WRX’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2018 Subaru WRX’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Subaru WRX shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your WRX’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2018 WRX Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Subaru WRX? 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.
  • When does Subaru WRX 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Subaru service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
