Suspension Service & Repair for 1989 Subaru XT

Does Your 1989 Subaru XT Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1989 Subaru XT, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your XT jolts, leans 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 1989 Subaru XT 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 dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your XT 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 XT’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Subaru XT Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1989 Subaru XT’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 XT’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Subaru XT shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your XT’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1989 Subaru XT Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my XT'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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Subaru XT? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Subaru intended.
  • When does Subaru XT 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 XT is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Subaru service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
