Just making sure, but they can be done in the car? Other question, are they all the same. I have a tranny that I bought that has 2 brand new inner drivers in it. It was out of an 88, and I have a 93 tranny in the car, will the interchange? thanks

They aren't the same: '86 are bigger than '89 for a start, which means the tripod bearings are different sizes. They still fit in the car the same though.

Help...Checked inner drivers, but still shakes.

Oh boy, well I just checked in inner drivers and the are fine. No marks nothing, they look new. I noticed I have bad ball joints, could that be causing shaking under load, all the way though the rpm range. What else can it be.. please help....

If its shaking when the engine is engaged only, then its likely something like an engine mount, or maybe a clutch going...

if its shaking all the time, then its probably something like a ball joint / suspension part...

had an engine mount go on a 9000 a while back and the car was lurching away in 1st gear from stationary...

I got the new ball joints in today, genuine saab ones, gonna install em tonight. The shaking only occurs when in gear and under a load. Push the clutch in and it goes away. Could it be clutch, flywheel? I feel it in the seat and the dash, not the steering wheel as much.

Im pretty sure Im losing mt mind....

Well its official, I am going insane. I have replaced inner drivers, axels, all 4 ball joints, and when I was going to put it back together tonight, I find I have 2 bad wheel bearings. I am hoping this is my persistant squeak also, I guess I cant complain, I now have a new drivetrain, new ball joints, and now new wheel bearings. The car should drive great now. I should say replacing all of this was not nearly as bad as i first thought. Dont be afraid to get in there and get some stuff done..:lol:

Brought the bearings to a shop to get pressed, thats the one thing I do not have at my shop yet, but its on order. The guy called me and told me that the hubs are bad also. I found a used one and it will be done today. What could have caused this problem?

Was the outer race perhaps spinning in the hub?

That could mess things up.

I've just had this with the '89. Car was rough and I could feel it in the pedals and steeering wheel. RH hub was rough, so I took it off and got a new bearing and had it replaced and the hub was just as bad :roll: So was the car, so I took the LH hub off which seemed fine, got another hub and bearing, and when the shop replaced the bearing they found the wheel carrier just dropped out... so they used the carrier from the old RH hub which was a nice press fit into the bearing.

Now the car is much better, though I suspect the RH bearing will get replaced soon, just to make sure the bearings are all fine.
