    Hi all. Could you take a glance at the below picture and tell me your thoughts. It shows the rear underside of my y2k 9-3 vert. It has covered 16k miles with these springs and shocks (koni adjustable) and has just failed its MOT on account of them sagging. 1) do you agree these are...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    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.

    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...

    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
