  1. Alignment measurements, still shakes at high speed

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Over the last couple weeks I've replaced control arms, strut inserts, and tie rod ends as well as gotten new (used) front tires along with an alignment from Big O. Here's a timeline: Phase 1: Before replacing any hardware or tires - pulls to the right a bit Phase 2: After replacing control...
  2. First Saab- Burning Question

    9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    I just bought a 05 9-5 wagon. Runs like a champ. My only question is, do all saabs tend to have a rougher start (turn over) compared to other cars. All cars Ive own had a very smooth start in comparison. I turn the key and get a quick rumble/shake. Almost like a diesel tractor. After that it is...
  3. shake and rattle during shift?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    The car is a 2004 Linear 2.0t automatic. It's the gf's car and she told me that it seemed to be shifting weird and the car would shake.

  5. Pothole damage, now HID headlight shakes or flutters

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    The other day I hit a sizeable pothole. In fact several other people hit the same pothole and ended up on the side of the road. The impact ended up bending the rim and I intend to replace it this weekend. Since the pothole impact the right HID headlight seems to shake or flutter. When I see its...
  6. Shake or Vibration and Motor Mounts (left and right) +photos

    9-5 Workshop
    So, my car has had this horrible shakiness under different circumstances. It shakes while idling in D while stopped which is a bit bothersome, but most 4cyl autos I have been in are this way (however my Saab seems a bit worse than others); I read that this shakiness might come from the torque...
