  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    The ride of my 2011 TTiD (75k miles) SC is beginning to annoy. It seems to crash over the slightest imperfections in road surface. I replaced all four shocks with Bilstein B4s just over a year ago, which made a noticeable difference at the time. Should I have changed the springs and/or other...

  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi - I own a 2001 SAAB 93 convertible - bought it recently - but finding it worrying that the ride is very very bad with every little pebble on the road sending the car into shudders, its just about unbearable on A & B roads - and when trying to overtake it feels like the car is going out of...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I've had the above '02 5 door for 5 months now and want to love this car, it is quick, comfortable, practical and looks great and its my third Saab. The trouble is that I cannot live with the bad ride, it seems to transmit any slight roughnes in the road surface straight back into car which...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi guys, I'd like to compare the ride height of my car as it has done some towing and looks a little low at the back\high at the front. As far as I know it's on standard springs ect & has 235/45 R17 tyres, Tyre ware is similar, pressures equel (30psi) The height of the wheel arches where...

    What is the definitive answer to improving the ride as it seems harsh over potholes , unsettled on moorland roads and tramlines unacceptably. The car has been 4 wheel aligned is mechanically all OK, tyres are 225 45 17 XL Khumos on the front and Dunlop Sports on the rear, though problems were...

    Had an issue with my new 95, which the AA came and sorted. As I had just moved to Glasgow, asked him if he knew any good garages for saab and he recommended this one. So had it serviced last month with 39000 miles on the clock, however there has been an issue with the drivers window since new...
  12. New Saab 9-5 (2010 - on)
    Just trying to get some feedback on the ride quality between the 18" and 19" rims as used on the Aero. would I notice a big difference if I changed to 19"
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    The ride on my 2005 9-3 is incredibly rough on poor Irish B roads, you feel even the smallest of bumps and potholes. Even when driving over cats eyes the dashboard squeaks like mad. I have the 17" alloys with 225/45/17 tryes fitted. The tyres are pumped to 33psi, after trying the 35psi as...
  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    anybody know what the ride height should be on the above. the rear is just pukka but to look at the front it just looks like something is missing or simply too high.

  16. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hey Recently had my front shocks and springs replaced at a fast fit garage approx 3 weeks ago. However the front ride height seems marginally higher than the rear, I've been back to the garage and they have said the springs will need time to "settle" however I have completed 500 miles since...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Recently traded up from (150k mile) 02 Aero saloon to (50k mile) 56 Aero Estate. AFAIK the 02 was on original suspension and was getting a bit soft round the edges. The new car holds bends better than old, but I'm slightly surprised at the harshness of the ride on imperfect fast (ahem) A-roads -...

    Hi Guys Me again, following on from the warranty replacement of the front springs on my 05 plate 9-3 1.8T sport, 2 weeks ago. I have noticed that it "appears" to be riding lower than before. a curb that I parked nose to before replacement, I now cannot park over without scraping the front...
