Proudly serving Northern Colorado since 1993, our team of ASE Certified technicians has the tools and the knowledge to take care of any auto repair, regardless of how minor or major. We specialize in all Subaru models, from the sporty WRX and BR-Z to the practical Impreza and versatile Forester. Scott’s takes care of a variety of automotive maintenance and repair issues, including shock and strut replacement.
Your Subaru’s shocks and struts make up the main components of its suspension system, providing the excellent ride quality and handling you’ve come to expect of your car. These gas-filled components not only help minimize various bumps and road imperfections, but they also keep the car level and composed during cornering. Even when your car’s fully loaded with passengers and cargo the shocks and struts work hard to deliver excellent ride as well as comfort and handling.
Over time, the condition of your shocks and struts will change to reflect age and wear. In fact, these changes are often so gradual that most people hardly notice the increasing discomfort and poor handling caused by worn out shocks. Completely worn shocks can cause your Subaru to lean and wallow uncontrollably during ordinary driving and cause the struts to come into contact with the strut tower or “bottom out” when going over bumps.
Even when you’re willing to deal with the increased discomfort that comes with worn shocks, it’ll also cause your tires, springs and ball joints to wear out much faster. In fact, worn shocks are often the main cause of accelerated wear and tear on other suspension components. Worn shocks also keep your car’s tires from staying in correct contact with the road surface. On wet, slippery roads, that can cause serious safety concerns for you and your passengers. In short, putting off this essential service can wind up costing you a pretty penny the longer you wait.
To prevent ride and handling issues from getting in the way of your everyday commute, Scott’s Fort Collins Auto recommends that you replace your Subaru’s shocks and struts every 50,000 to 60,000 miles. Not only will we take care of your shocks and struts, we’ll also inspect and, if necessary, replace the mounting bushings, plates and other hardware. Replacing your shocks and struts with high quality OEM parts will insure a smooth, comfortable ride, excellent handling and less wear and tear on your tires, springs and other suspension components.
