I just tightend the nut that holds the steering wheel adjustment lever and it made a world of difference in the car. This is a small 10mm nut on the base of the lever that allows the steering wheel to travel in and out. Steering wheel shake is almost gone and the the clunking noises going over bumps have lessened. This is definitely something to check if you have steering shimmy or suspension noises. The steering linkage did not seem to be loose and I was very suprised at the results. There was a tiny bit of vertical play that led me to investigate.

No, there is nothing to adjust down by the firewall. There is one connection that is not far from the top of the pedals and the others are closer to where the steering rod enters the dash. There is a SAAB TSB (641_1512UTG4.pdf) you can download from Genuinesaab or Townsend that describes the linkage and how to tighten the connections.

There is some kind of isolation U joint close to the firewall, but nothing to adjust on it.
