Shop By Service Type

The function of a shock absorber, also known as a damper, is to control the action of the spring to resist the forces transferred to a vehicle due to the impacts of rough terrain. Underpinning your Forester at each of its four corners, springs are accumulators of mechanical energy. Having compressed, they instantly tend to expand in order to release the accumulated energy. Left alone, the spring would keep doing so over and over again, which is bad both for the comfort and stability of a vehicle at speed. The shock dampens these oscillations.

Dampers do their job using liquid and gas inside. Whereas the gas compresses and expands naturally while converting the energy, the liquid interacts with multiple channels, holes and chambers inside the tube. The problem is that the seals that keep the fluid inside tend to deteriorate. Eventually, they start leaking. That's when you are likely to set out on a search for Subaru Forester shocks & struts because leaking dampers are useless. And the better the replacements are, the longer they will serve your Subaru Forester. In our selection, we have shocks that meet or exceed OEM quality standards.

Subaru Forester Shocks & Struts Reviews

1 review
I put 4 Pedders on as OEM replacements to smooth out an overly harsh custom performance suspension on my 2011 Subaru Forester. They definitely make rough roads and speed bumps tolerable, but are in no way cushy. The car no longer feels edgy and tracks a straight line easier. Speed bumps are absorbed with comfort. The unexpected result, however, is that they make the car corner flatter and improve the road holding at higher speeds as much as any performance shock I have used in my 62 years of sporty driving. My Subaru now has a high end German car feel. I think it is due to the quality and infinitely variable valving.
