Is It Time For 1998 Saab 9000 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1998 Saab 9000, 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 9000 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 1998 Saab 9000, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Saab 9000 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Saab 9000

Your 1998 Saab 9000’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1998 Saab 9000’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Saab 9000 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Saab 9000 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 1998 Saab 9000 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 help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Saab 9000 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 9000 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 9000’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Saab service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
