When To Get 2006 Saab 9-5 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2006 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, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2006 Saab 9-5 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Saab 9-5 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Saab 9-5

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2006 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 limit vibration and keep your Saab up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2006 Saab 9-5 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your 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. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2006 9-5 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 9-5's steering and 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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Saab 9-5? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Saab intended.
  • When should I have my Saab 9-5 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 9-5’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Saab service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
