2010 9-5 Saab Steering & Suspension Services

2010 Saab 9-5 Maintenance Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Saab 9-5 due for service yet?

Does Your 2010 Saab 9-5 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2010 Saab 9-5, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 9-5 feels bouncy, 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 2010 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2010 Saab 9-5’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Saab up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2010 Saab 9-5’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Saab 9-5 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2010 Saab 9-5 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2010 9-5 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Saab's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations 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.
  • 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’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Saab's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
