Saab 9-5 Suspension Upgrades

Had this little Saab come in this week to go through the 100k+ mile suspension. No point in putting in stock Sachs shocks when you can upgrade to Bilsteins right ;)

Up and ready to go.

First thing to do was to replace the front control arms/bushings/ball joints, so those were removed from the car.

Yuck. Definitely an all season car.

New bushing versus old bushing (front lower control arm)

Rear lower control arm bushing.

After that was done, we tackled the rear brakes that needed to be done. New pads and rotors.

Pads didn’t have much life left to them.

Then we slapped in the new Bilstein shocks and struts and sent it to alignment!
