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

When To Get 2008 Saab 9-5 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2008 Saab 9-5, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 9-5 bounces, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2008 Saab 9-5 in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 Saab 9-5’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, 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 2008 Saab 9-5 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 getting your 2008 Saab 9-5’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Saab 9-5 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2008 Saab 9-5’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.
