    After thorough investigation with friends yesterday I have deduced that it's time to replace the front struts and springs being that the springs were literally hanging around the strut not doing anything and on the left side the spring wasn't even on the strut tower:mad:. Any tips or tricks I...
  2. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    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...

    I work on most of my friends cars. On of them has a 99 9-3. When I first worked on it the car made a sound when going over any bump. Ends up the passenger side strut was busted, no resistance so I replaced both struts (they look like cartridges) a week later she came back and it was making...

    I am working on a 9-3 convertible that when it hits a bump or dip the passenger side make a noise which I found is to be the strut. When I push on front of the car to make it bounce up and down, I can see the top of the strut go down into where it is held. It seems to go down much lower than...

    Had my car in at a garage a week ago to check a knocking noise from the suspension and was told there was nothing wrong :rolleyes: Obviously hopeless so a mate of mine had a look and told me the strut mount was gubbed. Is it a difficult job? Is it worth trying myself? How much should I expect...

    found a deal on front struts which i will be replacing. Now im just wondering before i get into this is should i compress the spring before i unbolt the bearing plate from frame. Looks of it there is a bolt in stead of a nut which would ussually mean once you unbolt it the bearing plate is free...

    Hi, I am needing to change control arms on my wife's 1997 900 turbo convertible due to play, so thinking I might change the front shocks at the same time as it has done 120k. Like all convertibles it is a bit 'flexible' and was reading about uprated strut braces for the engine compartment...
