Not sure when or if your Saab 9-3’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 2006 Saab 9-3 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2006 Saab 9-3, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 9-3 jolts, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2006 Saab 9-3 in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 9-3 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Saab 9-3’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Saab 9-3 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2006 Saab 9-3’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2006 Saab 9-3 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Saab 9-3 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2006 Saab 9-3’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2006 Saab 9-3 Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 9-3's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Saab 9-3 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Saab intended.
  • Does my Saab 9-3 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 9-3 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Saab's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
