  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have a 2005 93 Arc that desperately needs new struts. I was thinking, that since I'm replacing the struts, why not lower it slightly and improve the handling. So my question is, does the Aero strut/spring combo ride any lower than my stock Arc suspension, and if so, is it a direct bolt in...

    Hi all I need a bit of advice. I have a friend who is selling some lowering springs. However the springs are for a vauxhall insignia tourer. I have a saab 9 3 2.8 v6 on a 56 plate. I have been told these may well fit my car. Does anybody know if this is correct?? Thanks in advance

    Hi All, I really like my 1.9TTiD but I do find the ride unacceptably harsh.. I am seriously looking at changing all the springs to none "Aero" ones.. Wouldnt mind the extra 10mm in height at all.. Has anyone done this? Or had it done? I once did this to a Mercedes "sports" model and it improved...

    Today I've had new front springs fitted to my 56 plate TiD 150 Vector Sport SW following a breakage. According to the invoice the ones they've fitted are part no. 93190594. They feel softer than the old ones to me, and they certainly look different (narrower diameter spring all the way up...

    Had a Chevy dealer (Still does Saab work) in Springfield MO USA diagnose a metal clunking sound as a broken spring. Quoted 800.00 US dollars to do the work for both side of the front. It seems as all the threads on this were pre-2012. I am sure they won't do the work for free now. Is there a...
  6. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Have started a thread in performance section UKS re Eibach gp buy. Price is £127.49 incl. vat for a set plus £11.34 postage to uk mainland for up to 2 sets. This is a great price for a class item. Saab/ HR/ Abbott are around double the price. This chance will likely not arise again so those...

    Hi folks, Those of you who follow the forum closely will know I've recently bought new springs mounts and bearings for the front end. I had them fitted today and drove away quite pleased with how the car felt, until I hit some rough road and heard a loud thud from the passenger side when it...

    Hi All, I am looking at lowering my Aero Vert 2004 but cant find any springs lower than 40mm, this will only drop the Aero 20mm. I know Vectra Springs fit but the Vectra is lighter than the Vert. I have found some 3.2 V6 springs on a 60mm drop, which will drop the Aero 40mm. With it being a...

    As I understand the Saab 9-3 Aeros are 10mm lower than the standard springs. When I next replace my springs can I fit the Aero ones instead of the standard ones? Straight swap or a different shock?

    Do they have a particular weak spot...... Or could it be just about anywhere ? I've recently (Last day or two) Been getting a intermittent "Dunk" noise from my OSF wheel area when I drive over a dip! ..... I've had my head under there & nothing looks out of place that's obvious..... The only...

    Hi all, changed my ARB links at the front this weekend, really easy job, car feels loads better now, however, noticed I have the obvious common problem of a snapped coil spring at the front :( - here is where it gets funky, I simply cannot seem to find the correct spring / springs to replace it...
  16. Part number requests
    I have a 2007 9-3 2.0T (manual transmission) and I want to lower it 10mm and put on Koni FSD's. I get a deal on OEM Saab parts, so I'd like to use the 4-cylinder 9-3 Aero springs from 2004/2005. I've heard that they're the white/white colour codes, but I can't find a part number. Thanks. Here...

    Ok, I changed my rear pads a few weeks back. When doing so the spring clip snapped and the inserts are stuck / welded / seized into the caliper. I've got by without it as it just stops a bit of noise apparently and tbh I havent noticed any difference at all. Today it failed mot on rear upper...
