Is It Time For 1997 Saab 9000 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1997 Saab 9000, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 9000 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 1997 Saab 9000 in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 9000 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 9000 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1997 Saab 9000 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1997 Saab 9000 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Saab 9000 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1997 Saab 9000 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1997 9000 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 9000's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Saab 9000? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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 9000 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 9000’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Saab's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
