  1. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi i need to buy a set of front shocks for my x plate saab 93 1999 2.0 lpt turbo could someone advice me if these shocks will be fine via the link: am i ok to post the ebay link? Ive been told to order the arm and shock for the left and right front as the arm itself has deteriated over the years...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have a bit of a rattle on my front suspension that appears to be slowly getting worse. About a year ago I replaced the front shocks but only used some mole grips on a socket and an allen key to tighten. Just to make sure they are properly tight, I want to buy the right tool to tighten I. think...
  3. Saab Parts / Accessories, FOR SALE and WANTED
    Due to my inability to read a parts diagram, and my lack of skills in the german language :rolleyes: I have a pair of rear shock absorber lower mounting bushes for a 9-5 available (metal sleeve and rubber bushing). If interested, PM me. AFAIK they will fit any model year. I will be in the UK...
  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just been to my local Saab dealer over in Salzburg. Didn't understand all (most) of what was said to me but I gather I can't order any parts until the middle of next week for some unaccountable reason. So, does anyone know whether the rear shock absorber bushes that fit between the bump stop and...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Well, I'm pretty cheesed off today! I discovered a puddle of oily fluid under the rear of the car late this morning - close inspection reveals that it is a leaking shock absorber. :( I have been aware of the occasional bonk from the rear, but thought it was the transverse link bushes which are...
  6. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I recently aquired a very nice 1 owner 1996 9000 CD. (sold elsewhere in the world as the CDE I believe) I cannot believe that such an expensive car (when new) could be had for so cheap a price, especially when compared to the similar asking price for much older Asian cars, with almost triple...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, Does anyone know what rear shock absorbers I need for the 9-5 3.0 V6 TID, I need some knew ones but I'm not paying the £150 aech that a Dealer is quoting? Part number or web link would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Scott
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, I have a 2002 2.0l lpt 9-5 ARC saloon and have just been told by Saab that the shocks are getting weak as I asked them to investigate a rear twitch I'm getting when going over roads with rubbish/roadwork surfaces, albiet at low speeds. They would as they expected me to shell out the £580...
  9. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi Guys, I am suspicious that my near side rear shock absorber is on it's way out, intermittent clunking over speed ramps (I think whoever thought the things up should be run over ) and pot holes....is it merely a case of sitting in the boot and jumping up and down to diagnose? how much is...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just had my 2000 95 Aero in for it's MOT and they have failed on badly leaking nearside rear shock absorber. Now I intend handing the car back to finance company before december so don't want to spend what I don't need to. Local Partco have a part on the shelf for £30 + VAT for a gas shock...
  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    The Swiftmobile (1998 GM900 Turbo convertible) sailed through its 42k service yesterday, but I was advised that the shock absorbers were beginning to show the signs of leakage, and would probably have to be renewed before the next MoT. Are there any recommendations as to what to replace them with?
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I know the rear shocks on the 9-5 have a reputation for relatively short life, but do the fronts suffer from a similar short life? Are they the same shocks that are used on the back? As I had the rear shocks replaced a few months back, should I expect to be replacing the fronts soon??
