The 2005-2009 Saab 9-7x is built with the following rear suspension components:
2005-2009 Saab 9-7x Air Springs (x2) - commonly referred to as air bags, a plastic and rubber bag that uses pressurized air as a cushion to support the weight of the rear of the vehicle. These rubber air springs are the number one cause of all air suspension leaks. Since all air springs go bad at about the same rate, if one is leaking, the others will not be far behind. For a proper repair, all of them need to be replaced at the same time.
2005-2009 Saab 9-7x Shock Absorbers (x2) - has metal tubing filled with gas-charged hydraulic fluid; shocks dampen vibration and bounciness caused by the effects of travel on a rough surface.
2005-2009 Saab 9-7x Height Sensors (x2) - a linkage located near each wheel of a vehicle with any electronic suspension that, either mechanically or electronically, constantly measures the height of the vehicle, and reports this information back to the control module so that the computer can identify if changes in height need to be adjusted accordingly. The ride height sensor is a moving part, and like all moving parts, they will eventually wear out.
2005-2009 Saab 9-7x Air Lines- tubes that run from a compressor to the air which carry pressurized air to the air bags in order to adjust the height of the vehicle, respectively.
2005-2009 Saab 9-7x Solenoids (x2) - usually L-shaped, these plastic components work along with the suspension control module on vehicles with active suspension. The solenoid regulates the air pressure for each air spring. Solenoids start to leak as they wear out causing the vehicle to sag or to lean. This will cause the ride height sensor to send a signal to activate the compressor in an attempt to inflate the air suspension and level out the vehicle. This excessive work load will eventually lead to total failure of the compressor.
2005-2009 Saab 9-7x Compressor Assembly- creates/sends pressurized to active suspension components. When the air suspension starts leaking, the compressor/pump starts working harder to try to keep the system inflated. By the time air suspension leaks down completely, sitting the vehicle on its tires, the compressor will either have failed or be well on its way to full failure. Buying replacement air springs and taking the time to install them only to find out the compressor still needs to be replaced can be very frustrating, time-consuming, and expensive.
2005-2009 Saab 9-7x Dryer- prevents moisture build-up inside of air suspension parts.
2005-2009 Saab 9-7x Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicle's correct ride height.
2005-2009 Saab 9-7x O-rings- Although they are the least expensive parts of the air suspension, they are responsible for maintaining the seal where all of the air lines connect. Be sure to replace the O-rings when repairing any air suspension system.
Suspension Failure Signs
If your 2005-2009 Saab 9-7x is not reaching and maintaining its proper ride height, a failed or leaking air suspension system may be at fault. The most common sign is a sudden drop of three to five inches of the rear of the vehicle. The vehicle may also lean from one side to the other. If a suspension warning light is illuminated on the dashboard then you can be sure a repair or replacement is necessary. Listen to the air compressor for further proof. If it has stopped working or is running too often then a bad suspension may have caused it to wear out. If any of these symptoms are present they should be fixed promptly.
