Re: 9-5 Suspension upgrade

Night and day..on the assumption that we are talking lowering springs and Koni adjustables or similar.

When I bought a s/h Saab 9-5 a couple of years back I swore at myself for not taking a longer test drive. The ride was wallowy and uninvolving, especially as my car had the commonplace "worn rear shocks syndrome".

£500 and a few bruised knuckles later the car was transformed.At last the car did what you asked it and there was a great compromise between handling and comfort. Of course you then need to look at more power.....

Your spot on there I fitted it with the help of a friend over the weekend... and it actually doesnt wobble any more. Once again I am enjoying my drive . As for more power... Im currently running on a stage 1 PPC BSR upgrade... so the next thing is Stage1R and then upwards!.

Well worth the 5 hours work!.

Dicreamio,
Sorry to go off topic but with the PPC stage 1 for your 98 9-5 you will need a new ECU to 'manage' the red injectors if you go to stage 1R - a massive cost implication as essentially the PPC becomes a redundant piece. Unless youve heard otherwise PLEASE tell me!!!!
