Is It Time For 2020 Subaru WRX Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2020 Subaru WRX, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your WRX bounces, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2020 Subaru WRX in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your WRX suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Subaru WRX 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Subaru WRX

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2020 Subaru WRX’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Subaru up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your WRX’s shocks and struts 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 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2020 Subaru WRX suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2020 WRX Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Subaru's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Subaru intended.
  • Does my Subaru WRX power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your WRX is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Subaru service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
