When To Get 2005 Saab 9-5 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2005 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 bounces, pulls 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 2005 Saab 9-5 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Saab 9-5 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2005 Saab 9-5’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2005 Saab 9-5’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Saab 9-5 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 9-5’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2005 9-5 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Saab's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Saab 9-5? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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.
  • Does my Saab 9-5 power steering fluid need to be 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 follow Saab service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
