    Hi Had a clunk from the front suspension which turned out to be a rusted top strut which holds the shock absorb-er in. They rust where the thread is then shear off at about 1.5CM from the top. Expensive fix if you go down the new leg route and a second hand one will have the same problem or at...

    Well this morning, I replaced the factory fit Sachs shocks on my Saabillac. A relatively straightforward job, but getting the bottom mounting bolts out was a total bar steward. I ended up on my back under the car with my right foot pressing my weight against my long torque wrench before they...

    I have a bit of a rattle on my front suspension that appears to be slowly getting worse. About a year ago I replaced the front shocks but only used some mole grips on a socket and an allen key to tighten. Just to make sure they are properly tight, I want to buy the right tool to tighten I. think...

    Had B6 shocks on my previous 02 9-3 Aero and although the control was astonishing the ride quality was a bit harsh ( could have been the Aero springs). I want to retain comfort with a slight improvement over stock ( worn stock in my case) and the B4 looks the obvious choice. I don't want it...

    Hi all, my 05 plate 95 2.2 TID has the usual soggy springs on the back that need replacing - quick question though - is it an easy job to do at home with 'traditional' home tools, or would i need anything specific? Also note on ebay theres quite a plethora of different options / prices. Any I...

    Hello all, Hoping to get some advice and/or experience from others, on what the best shock absorbers may be for my 2005 9-3 saloon. I have already replaced the Springs with Eibach's, so the car is sitting 3cms lower at the moment, and I don't want the car to go any lower? My local garage has...
