Best Practices

We recommend that struts be replaced in pairs.

Prior to replacement of the struts/shocks, a full inspection of the Subaru Outback XT steering and suspension should be performed to identify any needed repairs. This will cut down on the labor costs when compared to replacing the worn parts separately.We recommend a four-wheel alignment when struts are replaced. The new struts can change the vehicle's ride height, which will change the wheel alignment.

Common Symptoms

Struts may need to be replaced due to oil leaks, knocking noises, or poor ride quality.
