    Rear shock absorbers

    Greetings my 9-5 seems to suffer from a lack of damping over rough surfaces at the rear and noting advice on rear bushes i had the car on a 2 poster lift and all bushes seem sound and was wondering that after 9 years and 88,000 miles the shockers could be past it, any guidance as to the best place to source replacements would be welcome. Many thanks in advance.

    SaaBits should be able to source the correct parts at a good price.

    Here is a thread from a while ago but probably still relevant: http://saabworld.net/showthread.php?t=1681

    Frank, that thread refers to the original 9-5 but this thread refers to the NG 9-5 and things are slightly different. Also, dgreaves is in the UK with a different range of suppliers.

    many thanks for the guidance and I'm also checking if the Insignia shocks are the same as they are a lot cheaper ie the price for a pair is the same as a single 9-5 item.
    I'll let you know.
