Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1996 Saab 900

When should you have your 1996 Saab 900 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 1996 Saab 900 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1996 Saab 900, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 900 jolts, sways 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 1996 Saab 900 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, shock absorbers, damper 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 your 900 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Saab 900’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Saab 900 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1996 Saab 900 suspension system. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1996 Saab 900 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Saab 900 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 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 1996 Saab 900 Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Saab's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Saab 900? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Saab 900 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 900 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Saab service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
