  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi everyone, I've just bought a Turbo X manual wagon which I am veeeeryyy pleased with but I have one little annoying thing going on and that is a squeak/creak from the front seems like LHS when driving. I'ts an eee-e-e-e-eee-e-e-eeee-ee type noise (said fast!) it happens when driving ordinary...

    Hi All Why not keep exising shock absorbers (good ride) but upgrade the anti-roll bars to stop the body role?? Any thoughts?? Stiffer suspension does not always mean better road holding, apparently. i have a school chum who works for a company who specialise in road holding kits for old cars...

    The £300 suspension ebay upgrade Hi. 1. I've seen this upgrade. how much harder is the ride? i do lots of miles so would find it tiring to have a noticable firmer ride. your thoughts? 2. if you fit this upgrade, do you have to have a wheel allignment done, as i've not long had it done...£60...

    Just a quickie! i have a 95 2.3t not aero. if i want to put some firmer springs/shocks on do i just get the aero ones? where is the best place to go, and how much is it likely to cost? Another quickie: anyone had bad experiences with an ecu performance upgrade or are they fairly safe? look...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My car is out of warranty in a couple of days, so I'd like to have a last stab at finding the source of the clonks from my suspension. When the load comes off the front suspension, such as dropping off a speed bump, there is often a clonk from the front. My dealer has investigated several...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Evening all, After a week with the Aero, I can't help feeling the handling is a little too soft and 'floaty' for my liking. Now I don't want to ruin the ride (my Evo8 felt like it had basically no suspension whatsoever) but I want to improve the handling and stability somewhat. Im looking...
  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I've got the well known knock from the front N/S suspension - it happened immediately after encountering a large pot hole. Drop link seems OK and the strut gaiter is still intact - suspect the top mount, although it appears still to be in one piece. 1) If the bump stop is split, does the gaiter...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Has anyone upgraded the BHP of there NG900 and not altered the stock suspension ? Reason I ask, I have just brought a standard NG900SET and It could do with a bit more power, like a STG1, but the ride is so comfy and smooth, I don't want to ruin it, but would like the extra power. Had an...
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Trying to replace CV boots, I have got stuck at the first stage . I cant remove one of the strut bolts (the upper one). The bolt is very stiff, I can just about move it with an 18 inch breaker bar. Any advice would be appreciated.
  10. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    purchased a pair of BOGE rear struts for a 900,just looked on the box and it says saab 90 -84. 99, 76-8 84. 900 excl turbo 78- they look smaller, are they the same for a 1988 900, if they are no use for mine anyone want to buy them
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    OK, I've had the V6 Estate for 6 months and now want to tighten up the suspension so it goes round corners! Looking on Elk Parts there are springs & Bushes I can get to go someway toward tightening up the ride. But as an Idiot with a full tool box & basic Car maintenance knowledge, is this...
  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I've recently bought a 2002 model (older shape) 9-3 SE 2.2 TiD 5 door hatch, and am really enjoying it. This is the first diesel car I've owned (always preferred petrols, but I drive 90 miles a day and diesel economy eventually made more sense) and I'm sure I'll get used to the noise some...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    YES - you guessed! ...Problems with the suspension. I have self levelling suspension which works great in one respect- when you fill the car it pushed down in the middle and the X shape suspension pushes up the suspension on the shocks on the outside so it levels the car out with the front...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Finally got fed up with my 1998 2.3 wallowing barge with 101k. After looking around went for the SAAB handling pack for £300.00 from Two Stroke to Turbo's EBay shop (inc delivery). What a difference! I wish I had done it when I bought the car. For me it's great. Not harsh, just taught and...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have noticed that my 1993 aero is a bit rattly/squeaky on bumpy roads (which is most of them these days). It's not alarming, but I'd like to sort it. Would this be suspension bushes needing replacing ? If so, is it worth getting poly bushes (do they cost a great deal more) ? cheers PiG
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    After a bit of spirited driving on Saturday whilst trying to follow a very quick bike engined seven down some bumpy B-roads, I noticed a creak from the steering suspension. On inspection this evening I found that one of the alloy sleeves that fits around the suspension arm fixing point (where it...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have seen in some other threads reference to the self levelling suspension available on the 9-5. Can someone please clarify if it can be put into the saloon models and whether its any real benefit on a low mileage car. I have seen the kit available from 2 Stroke and am considering it at...
  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I recently bought an Abbot suspension kit of ebay, 4 struts and both anti roll bars. Was it worth it, oh yes, what a difference the car is almost as smooth on the road as original but totally changed in the corners, I can now throw the car into a corner something I never did in 3 yrs of...
  19. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have briefly mentioned this before - and I mentioned it to my dealer today - but this is one of those things that I guess you have to see or feel to beleive. Basically my dealer was not that interested. I have been reading previous posts and noted a few about rear suspension problems in the...
  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    i have got the eibach kit on my 9-5, very happy with the handling but recently have been getting a lot of hum/vibration...anyway took the car into saabstyle cardiff today to have polybushes fitted (especially swing arm), whilst the car was off the ground i nearly passed out, the rear tyres have...
