Springs are...

    Hi guys, I'm looking for adjustable suspension for my 2001 9-5 Aero. Primarily I'm looking for lots of camber up front but I refuse to use shims. I would like to find adjustable strut mounts combined with coilovers. The reasons is for autocross.

    I am in need of a suspension overhaul on my 2003 9-5 Aero. I am going to upgrade struts and bushings. As this is my first time doing suspension I want to hear some tips and suggestions. For the struts, I am thinking about doing the Bilstein B12 Pro Kit, but my car already scrapes on my '04-'05...

    I recently had the struts and strut mount replaced on my 1999 Saab 93. The passenger side mount is shot already....cheap AFT part for partsgeek. However, the strut mount kit I used seems to have missing parts. According to thesaabsite.com I'm missing what they call the "spring disc" and the...

    Hey guys, I've been plagued by this suspension issue since I bought this Saab in February. I was hoping it was the strut mount, but upon closer inspection today I found it was the actual insert that the strut goes into which connects to the steering knuckle and wheel spindle. I've been...

  12. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So I was checking my tires on my 2006 Aero today when I realized the rears are starting to "cup." I bought the car used about 6,000 miles ago when it had around 91,000 miles on what I believe to be the original shocks and struts. I was wondering if anyone's used KYB shocks and struts and what...
  13. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey all, so I was told that my driver side coil spring is dangerously bad in my '04, and my mechanic recommended I replace them as well as both the struts and the strut mounts in the front. As far as replacing those, I've seen that the Koni FSD/Vogtland spring combo works well, and I've see post...

    I have a 1999 Saab 9-5 V6. I have a noise in the front suspension. I'm guessing it is a strut thrust bearing as I can hear it with very little suspension travel. I've also developed a little shimmy at high speed. How do you remove and replace the strut thrust bearing? Can this be down without...

    Hey all, Please forgive me as I am getting thouroughly confused reading through the forums and can't seem to find my issue using the search. If this in fact has been covered please post a link. On my 99 9-3 front driver side (Left hand drive) I have a pretty bad clunking in the suspension...

    So I just bought a new Strut Mount from SAAB for my Driver's side strut. I have never touched the suspension on this car and don't really want to pay the garage for 2 hours of work. For those that have done this, is this a rather simple job? Thanks
  17. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I just bought a 99 SAAB 9-3 SE and I have a few questions. 1. Apparently the battery in my remote (the banana attached to my key) needs to be replaced. How do I access the battery without breaking the case? I have read how to replace the battery in keys themselves but mine is in the banana...

    1999 93 conv. So a week ago i had the right strut mount replaced due to the strut bearing failure at my local Saab specialist. Suspension felt really good after the service while driving from shop to work and then from work home doing about 60 miles total. The next day i notice some creaking on...

    First of all for last couple months I hear squeaking noise when going over the bumps,found this video and it sounds just like mine (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eYQVG7mS1Pk). Also on low speeds or when taking off and turning wheel a cracking noise comes up. I have done some research and it...
  20. 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...
