Ok Peeps and Beeps now you guys said that for the suspension I should go with Aero Spring and bilstein HD now for some dagg reason I have no luck finding the Aero Springs I called the dealer and they said that they need VIN number and I dont have an aero i have an lpt so i wouldnt know any VIN for an Aero. I really want to take your advice but why is it so hard to find these springs I have posted in the classified and nothing. What should I do I am going to try a few more junk yards but no luck so far. So saab peeps Help me Pimp my ride:cheesy:

All you need to do is give your VIN number to a dealer, and they can cross reference your vin, and come up with the appropriate Aero springs for your linear. I did this with my Linear, and ordered them from www.genuinesaab.com. This way you get the proper weight class for your springs.

are you sure they want your VIN number and not just the part numbers? My Saab dealer will let me order any part so long as I know the part number. I'm sure one of the more knowledgable members could tell you the part numbers for the springs that would fit your car.

I had vowed not to get into another suspension thread, we already have 45 million of them and they are all subjective.

The saab roadholding kit will bring your car to pre 2001 Aero standards and is a good upgrade on the stock and worn suspension.

But it's not the best by far :nono;

Suspension changes are expensive and I have paid over and over again to get what I wanted, and my first upgrade was the road holding kit you mention. Personally I found it "crashy" and no where near firm enough, especially with the lack of "progressive springs" and over 250bhp totally inadequate.

I would follow the others recommendations personally, if they say the aero springs plus Billies are good, I'd be prepared to try that, however adding a progressive spring instead of the aero spring might be even better :confused:

...ditto here...

My advice would also be to cut out all this Aero spring business and get some proper aftermarket performance springs. The Aero springs are not stiff enough IMO and are a marginal improvement at best. Others have praised the Bilstein HD/Aero spring combo, which is probably loads better than the factory Aero setup since the stock dampers are crap anyway. Even the Aero suspension has a LOT of room for improvement. Save your money and get some real aftermarket springs and either Bilstein B8's (Sport in U.S. / Sprint in U.K.) or Koni's. It's probably cheaper anyway. Cheers.
