Re: wobbly subaru

Not a lot of info really, is it fuel in the tank?
Is the car stable on the brakes or mid bend at speed ?
If u lift off into a bend is the oversteer predictable or does 1 side feel wrong?
Are your droplinks ok on the rear? they are plastic so can break,

You say noise so could it be a dry bush ?

Jack the car up and make sure its stable,
Try wobbling the wheels to see if there is any movement,
Then check the C shaped drop links that connect the ARB to the rear hub.

Re: wobbly subaru

Yeah pretty much so unless u have just driven thru a puddle,
Good time to replace them both,
Something like the KYB AGX is a good upgrade if your budget can stretch.
