  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, I've been contemplating upgrading to the Hirsch performance springs for a more fluid ride and better body control, but at £480 for the parts plus 2-3 hrs labour to get them fitted it's not an easy decision! So, considering Abbott Racing have a set of springs for the latest 9-3 for £300...

  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all I have a question re- decent dampers for my 2000 9-3 Aero convertible, this comes with sport suspension, which I gather means a slightly shorter set of springs. I would like to keep the OEM springs, but want a long lasting damper. Car now has 121000 kms on it, drives OK, but makes a loud...

  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, a newbie here. I took my car for an MOT and it failed due to a leaking rear damper. I was quoted £480.00 plus labour and it was suggested i needed a pair and this would have added over £1000.00 to my 72000 mile service bill of over £500.00 (car has only done 23000). The garage were unable to...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Has anyone tried Koni FSDs? I would be grateful for opinions as to whether they do provide comfort over potholes and speed bumps as well as good high speed control. Thanks.
  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Since owning the car I could hear the rear dampers hissing working when driving over speed bumps (Air sound as they resettle) but since having some weight in the boot recently and also hearing a noise from the boot area at the same time the sound I used to hear as gone ? Although the clicking...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    A friend has a 2000 reg Griffin estate and is convinced that it is becoming more wallowy and prone to poor control with respect to the rear damping. The car has covered 115,000 miles. He drove my Griffin saloon last night over roads that he finds causes his to feel underdamped and reported that...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I needed to replace the rear dampers on my 9-5 Aero (MY2000) as one of the Eibach pro-dampers had failed. I had fitted Eibach pro-dampers and Eibach springs in 2005. Apparently the Eibach pro-dampers are no longer made so I brought Sachs super touring dampers (for 9-5 sports chassis). I...

    There seems quite a lot of support for the Hirsh Spring upgrade as improving ride without spoiling handling.... I was talking to a chap at Abbott Racing Motorsport yesterday and he gave a different view.... His said that the Saab Sports Springs are fine, hard springs are needed, but the dampers...
