    I have a 99 SAAB 9-3 SE hatchback. I was wanting to know if it takes a special tool to install new Sway bar bushings?

    Hi I am considering and assemble into Powerflex bushings, in the chassis. I wondered, if anyone has experience with how the car is and run with. Gets it the go-cart-like. More or less, to stiff to drive with. And will I get some more noise, when driving. And besides other things that occur, to...

    My Control arm bushings are bad in my 1999 Saab 9-3SE Sedan. Do I have to change the control arm also or can I just do the bushings? Is it bad to drive with them like this until I can fix it? Can someone please explain the difference between buying just the bushings verses buying the control...

    My Control arm bushings are bad in my 1999 Saab 9-3SE Sedan. Do I have to change the control arm also or can I just do the bushings? Is it bad to drive with them like this until I can fix it? Thank you

    I have an 03 9-3 SE and I have some pretty extreme negative camber on the rear wheels more so on the passenger side. I did some reading and found that on the 9-5s, and 900's had this issue and it can be corrected by replacing the rear axle bushings. Is the also true for the 9-3? I know the...

    I have a 99 Saab 9-3 SE 2.0 Turbo 4 door Hatchback. How do you know if the control arm bushings are bad? If they need to be replaced do you need to do both sides? Thank you for any input you can offer.

    My 2000 9-5 LPT 2.3 230k has worn out the summer tires on the inside (both front & back). The front ones actually delaminated a week ago on the inside. I cut myself on the steel belts changing them... I made an appointment for alignment but maybe I need new bushes. I have had the car since 80k...

    I'm Greg, and I'm not the Saab fanatic that many on this site are. Nevertheless, I really love my Aero Wagon, which is just a joy to drive and is a great kayak carrier. I would really NOT have loved the Subaru LL Bean Ltd Wagon that was the alternative I passed up in 2003 when I bought my car...

    Has anyone done the Powerflex bushing upgrade in a garage or DIY? I'm not sure if I should call it an 'upgrade', just thinking about replace the aging and wearing rubber bushings of a 9-5 estate. Not driving fast but often carrying a lot of weight. Cheers.

    Hi All, In my original post back in May: http://www.saabscene.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=31644928 I had just bought a nice looking '95 NG900S naturally asp. with a knock and a strange piece of something floating around in the sump. Long story short, #3 big end and #4 main had both spun. My...

    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...

    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...

    Hi, Im curious what the difference is between the various polyurethane bushing manufactures is... Ive seen them on abbott, and elkparts has at least 3 manufactures listed. They all have different prices, (and i understand that some come with housing or the inner tubes) but regardless i think...

    While driving my car, almost everytime I downshift into second gear it pops out and I just end up revving my car. It will stay in if I hold it down, but if I don't hold it down strong it tries to pop out and grinds gears Will new bushings fix the issue? Do I just need to do an adjustment...

    I'm about to replace the rear 18mm rear anti-roll bushing with poly bushings from Elkparts. This looks like an easy job. But these are only the two centre bushings. What about the bushings at the ends of the ARB. I did not find any matching bushins for this purpose. Is it possible to replace the...

    Just noticed that my transmission mount needs to be replaced and my upper engine mounts are going bad too. I'm considering poly bushings, but I was wondering if anyone has any experience with poly on an auto box. Europarts says that poly will increase vibration in an auto, but I was hoping for...

    For your info, when replacing the front outer bushings on the 9-3 or NG900 (part # 45457111), the Elecronic Part Catalogue drawing will lead you to believe that a kit of 4 clips (part # 5330196) is needed ( 1 up/down on each side). These clips ARE NOT NEEDED. I checked with the local Saab dealer...

    I recently purchased headlight bushings for my right headlight because the old bushings have broken making the headlight wobbly and unable to adjust. This morning I tried to put on the new bushings but it seems as if there is no way to do so. The adjuster screw has one side that clips to the...
