Subaru Forester: Details on how to replace the rear struts

Details on how to replace the rear struts and mounts on a 2003 Subaru Forester AWD.


Sorry about that. This job does require special tools. However, you have other options. You can install loaded rear struts, which come with new springs and mounts already assembled on the strut, in which case you do not need any special tools. Loaded struts are installed as an assembly with no special tools required because there’s no need to compress the spring or transfer anything over.

Another option would be to bring the strut assemblies into Napa and have them swap the springs and mounts over to the new struts for you. The charge for this is only around $11 per strut.

I’m sorry I don’t know how to reduce the price of the question. If you would like to accept you can then contact just answer about obtaining a partial refund. I truly hope this information was helpful and I’m sorry for any inconvenience.Alex M40630.0945116898
