1986 9000 Saab Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1986 Saab 9000 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1986 Saab 9000, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 9000 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1986 Saab 9000 in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 9000 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Saab 9000 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1986 Saab 9000 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 9000’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Saab 9000 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1986 Saab 9000’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1986 Saab 9000 Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 9000's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Saab 9000? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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.
  • Does my Saab 9000 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 9000’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Saab service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
