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

When To Get 2004 Saab 9-5 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2004 Saab 9-5, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 9-5 feels bouncy, drifts 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 2004 Saab 9-5, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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 components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your 9-5 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Saab 9-5 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2004 Saab 9-5 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Saab up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2004 Saab 9-5’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Saab 9-5 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2004 Saab 9-5 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

Questions About 2004 Saab 9-5 Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 9-5's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Saab 9-5? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Saab intended.
  • When should I have my Saab 9-5 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 9-5 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Saab's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
