Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1990 Subaru XT

Is the steering and suspension system in your Subaru XT due for service yet?

Is It Time For 1990 Subaru XT Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1990 Subaru XT, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your XT jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1990 Subaru XT in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your XT 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 XT 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 XT Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Subaru XT’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 limit vibration and keep your Subaru up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1990 Subaru XT shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your 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.

1990 XT Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Subaru's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Subaru XT get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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.
  • Does my Subaru XT power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Subaru service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
