Ever hit a bump in the road, and felt your Subaru move and rattle in a way that genuinely scares you? Could have been an extra-deep pothole that has nothing to do with the vehicle, or it could be a very important issue in your car. How are we supposed to tell the difference? Inspect all the potholes in every neighborhood? There has to be a better way. Every bump in the road puts wear on two distinct parts of the car, the shocks and the struts.
What’s the difference? Shocks are compression systems that keep your car bouncing up and down when it would otherwise collide against itself whenever it hits any kind of bump. Struts, on the other hand, are connected to the chassis of the car. They are very different, and much more difficult to handle without the help of a Subaru professional. The springs and strut system itself can even be quite dangerous to try and fix at home. Even worse, these struts wear down very gradually over time, and most people can’t even feel it happening.
So when should you replace shocks and struts? When does it become dangerous? Keep this in mind the next time a bump in the road feels more jarring than it should. Maybe it’s time to take the car into a trusted mechanic and have your suspension thoroughly examined. Have you ever seen a shock or strut leaking? That means it cannot be doing its job properly and should absolutely be replaced.
Subaru suspension repair is not something that you should try to do by yourself. Instead, take your car into the Subaru Clinic, and work with our team of trained professionals to ensure that your shocks and struts are keeping you and your loved ones safe. Doing this will drastically improve the handling and performance of many vehicles, even making it seem like the car handles like it is new. Crisp, clean, firm handling is expected out of every shock and strut replacement the Subaru Clinic in Broomfield performs.
