Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Hi guys,

I have a fair list of things I'm going to have to replace on my 113,000 miler, and I was looking for a bit of help regarding the shocks on my Saab 9 3 1.9 TiD 16v z19dth.

The car definitely has the sports suspension option.

The list of things I need to replace include the clutch and flywheel (£360 neobros, battery £90 varta, front struts and possibly rear). As the value of this car is low, I don't want to spend too much on it.

I have seen that on eurocarparts/carparts4less, the sachs shocks for a vectra C are much cheaper than those for a saab 9 3. Please see link below:

Over £100 per front strut for saab: ... 0e7&000925

and £55 for the "sports suspension" on a vectra: ... e87&000925

I know the part numbers are different, but these parts numbers I believe are eurocarparts own ones.

Do any of you guys know if the shocks for the vectra are the same as the saab?

Thanks guys!

I've checked the Sachs online catalogue and the part numbers are different. My struts have a GM number on which it may be worth using instead of the Saab part number
