1983 Saab 900 Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1983 Saab 900 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1983 Saab 900, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 900 bounces, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1983 Saab 900, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 900 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 900 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Saab 900 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1983 Saab 900’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 900’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Saab 900 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1983 Saab 900’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1983 Saab 900 Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Saab's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Saab 900 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Saab intended.
  • When does Saab 900 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 900’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Saab's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
