  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I really don't know what I need to do at this point. Thousands of dollars have now been pumped into my 9-3 in repairs and this horrendous rattling coming from the rear passenger side still persists. It sounds like this metal rolling around or rattling and gets faster as I accelerate but the...

    I love my 2000 Viggen coupe but Ive moved out to the country and this car prefers pavement to forest roads. I love the car and am just curious if its possible to modify the suspension to let me take this on rougher roads. Thanks

  5. 9-5 Workshop
    So I have a SAAB 9-5 Aero that I got with some aftermarket rims, and about 2 or so months ago I installed some 1 inch spacers to fix my fitment and they made the car look way nicer and handle a bit better, however I've ran into a issue. Every single time I load more than one person into my car...

    Hey I have 2009 Saab 9-3 2.0T and when I turn the wheel at low speeds or stationary, it makes a loud creaking sound. It started about a week ago, then it disappeared for two days, and over the last two days it has gotten progressively worse. About 7 months ago, I replaced both front strut...

  14. 9-5 Workshop
    I'm looking to upgrade the rear suspension on my 2004 9-5 Arc wagon. The old suspension is sagging quite a bit, and I'm about to install a tow hitch and start towing small trailers. I'm worried that with the extra weight of a trailer, or even with a bit more time, the suspension will sag to the...

    Just picked up what cardyourcar said was one of the last kits from the Hirsch factory (shocks and springs)...Not sure that if that's true but it seems possible given the age of the car. Anyways, put the spring and shocks on my 2005 9-5 Aero. Both my saab mechanic and I were surprised by how...

  20. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi all, I'm trying to wrap my head around the spring codes (both front and rear) for the 9-5. I can find lots of posts of the sort "if you have this model, use this spring," but I can't find any threads that actually discuss the physical differences between the spring codes. Has anyone found...
