2002 Saab 9-5 Maintenance Schedule

Not sure when or if your Saab 9-5’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 2002 Saab 9-5 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2002 Saab 9-5, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 9-5 jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2002 Saab 9-5, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 9-5 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 9-5 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Saab 9-5 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2002 Saab 9-5 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 9-5’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Saab 9-5 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2002 Saab 9-5 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2002 Saab 9-5 Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Saab's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Saab 9-5 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. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Saab intended.
  • Does my Saab 9-5 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Saab's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
