  1. Loose Polyurethane Subframe Bushings

    9-5 Workshop
    Hey all, I installed the PPS blue poly subframe bushings about a month or two ago, and not long after I installed them I noticed a weird clicking/clunking sound when accelerating, decelerating, going over bumps, etc at low speeds (no weird noises once I'm in the highway). It also only happens...
  2. Suspension Clunk is the control arm ball joint?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have a dull clunk coming from the right front wheel when turning and going over a curb or speed bump. I can feel it in the steer wheel, it's like a joint that comes out of the socket and goes back in but it doesn't affect the steering at all. I just installed complete strut assemblys and...
  3. Creaky front end

    9-5 Workshop
    I searched this forum, and there are like 6 or 7 threads about the same issue I am having, but none of them include the resolution to this issue, so I am still without an answer.

  4. 2003 9-3 arc steering clunk

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    When the turning cycle is initiated, the steering makes one thick metallic clunk, right as the turning starts and rotates off-enter. THis applies to both directions. Would this be the rack-and-pinion, or could it possibly be a slightly less intimate fix, such as the sway bar?
  5. Clunk/click after sway bar link replacement

    9-5 Workshop
    Just replaced sway bar links because inspection station said it needed them (even though they were only one year old). New links are Moog (the ones with grease fittings). Drove up to the mountain for a ski, came back to town without issue until I pulled in to a car wash parking lot and...
  6. Driver side clunks

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    First off, I tried searching in the forums for the symptoms I am having but I cannot tell if my problems are a strut mount, stanchion, or control arm bushing, and I'm hoping a pro can lead me to the correct one with my descriptions. Also, I'd like to say I'm a first time Saab owner as of...
