Subaru Suspension Repair


Using the Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system that comes standard on most models on or off the road means that you get a fun ride wherever your journey takes you. Contributing to the comfort of your ride is the onboard suspension system.

And the team at our Subaru service center serving Wayne NJ will perform any repair or replacement your suspension needs on components including the shocks and struts. The shocks, or shock absorbers, are one part of the struts that also include the following other structural parts:

  • Coil spring, leaf spring or torsion bar
  • Spring seats
  • Strut bearing
  • Steering knuckle

Your Subaru's shocks are made of a piston concealed inside a sealed tube filled with gas and/or liquid to give you a smooth driving experience. The shock absorbers are designed to help your vehicle's wheels to recover from bumps when you hit them while distributing the energy from them properly.
