I have a broken rear spring on my 2014 Subaru Forester. Should both rear springs be replaced or is it OK to replace just the one?
It is best to replace both at the same time. or one side of the car would be higher because of the new spring.
Since you broke one there is a good chance the other one may go too so replace both.
Have the same problem with my 2014 Forester with only 58k miles and no history of accidents of overloading. Suspect a defective spring and can't get it repaired for possibly 3 weeks because of a national shortage in the parts. WTF!!!?
I am having the same problem with my 2015 forester it will be 6 weeks I will be driving a broken car and Subaru has been no help with the situation! I have a feeling it is a bigger problem that won’t admit to
I have 2 broken rear coil springs on my 2014 Forester with under 25000 miles. I'm the original owner. Is this common, or an unannounced recall? The dealer blamed age and "the elements" (in Illinois we salt the roads in winter). He insisted I take a free loaner while he orders parts in "about a week".
Dealer replaced the broken spring and has 4 more Foresters with the same problem waiting to get fixed. There’s a national shortage of the part so he thinks there may be a recall at some point.
I took my 2015 forester today to another dealer they were amazing they are covering repairs for no cost! Put me in a loaner until parts are obtained and repairs are complete. I thankful their are some dealers who recognize it’s a problem and are willing to do the right thing.
My daughter's 2014 Forrester has 2 broken rear springs with under 58K in mileage. She doesn't remember hitting a big pothole or anything similar that would have make them break. Looking at this, it might a bigger problem.
