    Yesterday I fitted new ARB bushes and droplinks to cure a little bit of rattling over bumps. I got OEM 2 piece bushes and the part numbers matched the old ones. Now to get the old ones out you need to remove drop links. Next drop the subframe a bit (including lowering the engine and gearbox...

    Morning all, '53 9-3 2.0T Aero Front ARB bushes (should be 25.2mm I believe). These are on back-order from Saab with an expected delivery of about 5 weeks. Anybody know if an equivalent Vauxhall had the same ARB as the ones fitted to the Saab? Many thanks, Steve.

    These things are cheap enough at around 4quid each. Question is how long do they stay quiet when you replace them? is it worth the trouble or will it still squeak and crunch when its cold, even with new ones? cheers

    Hi! I am new to this forum so I will begin with sending my regards to everyone here. I am planning on replacing the front anti roll bar drop link bushes. I had the car on a ramp to examine the current parts and to see how easy/difficult this will be before committing to anything. So, I have...

    Guys, I'm renewing the rear shocks on my '96 9000 Aero and the bolts were siezed solid in the bushes on the ends of the anti roll bar - these are the long bolts that secure the bottom of the rear shock. So I've bought new bushes (rubber) but am having real problems pressing them into the ends of...

    My stg 3 Aero is currently on std suspension other than poly on rear arb and front wishbone butterflies. I have an unused 18mm rear bar and am mulling over using it as a piggy back similar to Abbott although the Abbott is only 12mm. Is this feasible without overstressing the hangers? I used to...

    Hi I noticed my off side ARB drop link has broken and is causing a lot of rattling - are these difficult to replace? Will I need to compress the suspension to work on them? many thanks, George

    Hi I was trying to change the rear ARB bushings today, and one of the screws snapped. Any tips on getting the piece of screw out that is now stuck in the piece hanging from underneath the trunk? (sorry, I do not know what it is called) This happened even though I had sprayed penetrating oil on...
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Yesterday I took the car for the yearly inspection and I was told that my rear ARB busings were getting old (though this did not mean the car fails the inspection) I am considering getting powerflex bushings after the good reviews I read here. The fronts look fine. I wonder if changing only the...
