Created on: 2021-01-16

Watch this video to learn how to fix a sagging or loose suspension. The experts at 1A Auto show how to replace the front shocks in your 05-09 Subaru Outback.

  1. A professional alignment is recommended after this repair has been completed

    step 1 : Removing the Wheel
    • Find level ground
    • Loosen the lug nuts with the vehicle on the ground with a 19mm socket and breaker bar
    • Raise the vehicle with a floor jack from the jacking point behind the oil pan (do not jack up from directly underneath the oil pan)
    • Secure the vehicle on jack stands by placing the jack underneath the pinch weld and locking the jack
    • Remove the lug nuts
    • Pull off the wheel
    • Place the wheel underneath the side frame rail
  2. step 2 : Removing the Strut
    • Open the hood
    • Press the tabs and remove 12mm bolt and the ABS wire bracket from the strut
    • Remove the bolt on the brake line bracket with a 12mm wrench
    • Loosen the strut nuts with a 19mm socket and a breaker bar
    • Remove one bolt
    • Remove the three nuts from the top of the strut with a 12mm socket
    • Remove the bolt from the bottom of the strut
    • Lower the strut down and out
  3. step 3 : Installing the Strut
    • Transfer the bolts from the old strut to the new strut
    • Insert the strut up into place
    • Line up the bolt holes with the knuckle
    • Thread a nut on top by hand
    • Insert two lower strut bolts by hand
    • Tighten the three nuts evenly to the top of the strut with a 13mm deep socket and ratchet
    • Tighten the lower bolts with a 17mm socket and ratchet
    • Torque the bolts to 112 foot-pounds
    • Insert the brake line in place and tighten the 12mm bolt
    • Tighten the 12mm bolt to the ABS wire
  4. step 4 : Reattaching the Wheel

    • Start the lug nuts by hand
    • Tighten the lug nuts preliminarily

The strut assembly comes as advertised. This is my 2nd second assembly that I have ordered. This strut assembly has worked on my 2005 and 2006 outback and installation takes less than 1 hour if you’re doing it by yourself. Very nice.

These guys were great. I am always leary about blind purchases for auto parts on line. Taking a leap of faith purchased struts and shocks combo from these guys and am very impressed. 2008 outback originals finally went out and replaced with there item. Coil overs were heavier than OEM and the ride is steady. Very prompt, dead on fit and will be working with these guys again. Stay straight and honest, thanks.

The parts came well packaged and marked. Super easy install and the car rides like new. I had my son do the replacement since it was his car. He was quoted $2k for same job. He was stoked that he saved $1800 and proud of himself. The video was excellent and the main reason I used A1.
Excellent: quality and delivery

I recently installed these springs on my 2008 Subaru Outback. Completely cured the rattle that most Outbacks develop over time due to the top part of the rear spring becoming worn and loose. Overall a good purchase. Just have to see if they last.
So far so good

I replaced front and rear struts using 1a auto Quick struts. The choice was primarily due to price. The struts made the old Suby ride like new. The car has 170K and this is the first replacement so the old struts were pretty shot. I don't know how long these will last. I doubt they will last as long as OEM or higher end struts. We only want to get another 80K miles so hopefully they will go that long. The struts raised the car a good three inches, maybe four. I think it may be a bit too high. Hopefully the car will drop a bit over time. My wife has not seen the car since I did the job and I am wondering if she will notice the extra height. The 1a auto DYI videos are good. However the job, particularly the rears are much much more difficult working on the floor on jack-stands compared to the video where the car is on a lift. The fronts are really easy. If the struts go the distance, I will be very happy. The local Firestone shop quoted $1000 plus tax. I am in for <$400
First time working on my own car!

These were the first parts I've gotten to fix my car up myself. And the videos by 1A Auto made it so easy to learn how to replace the parts myself. Ill definitely be using this site to repair my car in the future!

These shocks went in easily and provided a greatly-improved ride quality. I recommend them to anybody looking to save significantly over dealer prices
Perfect fit and seem to be doing the job.

All four struts fit perfectly and have improved the ride of the car significantly. The only difficulty was a stubborn, corroded nut or two under the car.
