Re: Suspension information

hi there, this is my first post i wonder if you cn help me. my scooby which is a 2.0 sport 2004, has developed a wierd sideways wobble on the rear end when doing low speeds. A visual inspection has showed nothing untoward, have changed diff oil and checked wheel bearing and also wheels are not buckled. Has anyone experienced this before and help me please?????

Re: Suspension information

Hi Em.

is the suspension hard at all??..i know on some of the 03 plated scoobs onwards there is a fault with the rear shockers,which can give you all sorts of trouble,iirc a subaru main dealer should be able to replace them seeing as it's a known problem

Re: Suspension information

Re: Suspension information

kwikfit may not have an idea on the scoob suspension setup,some places do,so don't...as for the tyres,the tread my be defective/distorted,hence the wobble,iho i'd get the suspension check by a subaru dealer or a tuning specialist...
