Subaru remember

According to the statement, the tightening torque of the four stabilizer support bolts may be lower than specified by the brand. The use of the car can cause the screws to loosen, causing noise in the suspension or even turning off the support from the place. As a result, the brake pipes, axle shafts and subframes can be damaged, with the risk of losing the brakes.
