  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hey, I am embarking on a full overhaul of both front and rear suspension after one of my front springs broke. I have an '04 vector with sports suspension, which I have decided is too harsh a ride, so I will not be replacing with originals. Eibach Pro kit, Koni FSD's, Powerflex Bushes...
  2. 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.
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    As it says.............. Not long ago on my I replaced my 03 Aero (9-5) estate's front struts and springs and rear shocks with factory originals and also front drop links. I had hoped by doing this it would, after settling in, give me a better ride. Well it did for a short time and now I'm a...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My 2003 93 aero has the original suspension still and suffers badly from the front end crunching ( especially when temp is below 10 degrees). I have had the sway bar bushes lubricated and to be honest didnt notice much difference. I was speaking to a good saab indy and he suggested trying the...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I see Abbotts are advertising the Koni FSD shocks for the 9-5 now. Anyone any experience of them on an Aero. My 03 Aero estate is great on motorways but is a bit crashy on local roads round Norfolk and I can't stump up the dosh for Hirsch so was looking for seomthign little cheaper that will...

    I am considering fitting some Koni FSD's to a 9-3 SS Conv Vector and using the existing springs. Has anyone done this? If so did you notice a better ride and less diving and wandering. Spoke to Abbotts on Friday and they said the combination would be spot on.
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi everyone, after some research I decided to put a set of Koni FSD on my 9-3ss to improve the comfort/handling. However after some further reading in other forums I discovered in some cases (eg, Audi TT) the FSD will raise the vehicle height by approx 10mm. Is that true for Saab 9-3ss as...
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Anyone fitted Koni FSD shocks to their SS. I have a vector sport and the ride around town is terrible, like being in a milk float. Makes me wince. So if I am to keep the car this is an area I need to improve on. My car doesn't have the sports suspension. Cheers All
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I recently bought a 93 vector wagon - my first Saab & I'm very pleased with it - 7 month old MY07 & no real problems so far; no rattles or squeaks! There's just one thing that's starting to bug me a bit. Although the firm suspension is fine on twisty fast roads & m-ways, it does crash over...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Just thought I’d share a few thoughts on my recent Koni FSD purchase that may help others, in my attempt to soften the crash, bang and wallop of my original equipment sports suspension on my 2003 vector, which I bought second hand with 20k on the clock. I have put up with the crash, bang etc...
  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Just been speaking to the nice people at "Abbott racing" about getting the crashy suspension sorted out on my 93 Aero. They suggested that the above will sort the whole car out. "It will stop all the clunking / crashy ride at low speeds whilst still improving the handling at higher speeds". All...

    Hi guys, I'm a happy 93SS TrollR owner whom had just joined Saabscene. Came to know about this forum coincidentally. Was wanting to check with you that any of you guys had install the abovementioned setting on your 93SS??? If not, what are the best setting that are currently great for road...

    These sound very interesting. Good price too. Koni FSD So far though, the only Saab application is for the 9-3SS.
