Is It Time For 1999 Saab 9-5 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1999 Saab 9-5, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 9-5 feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1999 Saab 9-5 in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 9-5 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 9-5 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Saab 9-5

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1999 Saab 9-5’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1999 Saab 9-5 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Saab 9-5 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 9-5’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
