Replaced Components

The 2005-2009 Saab 9-7X is built with the following 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. As a replacement for metal coil springs, the air-filled rubber springs are uses to support the weight of the vehicle. Cracks in the OE 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 other one is 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)- these control the wheel-to-ground contact for the rear of this vehicle. Shocks help dampen the vibration and bounciness caused by rough road surfaces.

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)- 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.

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.

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 the 05-09 Saab 9-7x is unable to meet and maintain its proper ride height, its air suspension system may be failed or leaking. Early diagnosis of a bad suspension is the key to avoiding suspension total failure. First, look for a sudden three to five inch drop in the rear of the vehicle. There may be uneven heights between the two sides of the vehicle. Also, any sort of shifting lean from one side to the other is a red flag. If left unchecked, a bad suspension can wear out other vehicle components. The air compressor is especially susceptible to this; check if it is still working or is running too often. Lastly, and this sign is more obvious, an illuminated suspension warning light on the dashboard will confirm a suspension failure. The Saab owner should have any of these issues fixed immediately.



OEM Replacement Cost

+ Rear Air Springs ($160/spring)
+ Rear Shocks ($80/shock)
+ Air Compressor Assembly ($420)
= TOTAL: Over $900 (and that still doesn't include replacing electronic components that are known to fail such as the height sensors).



Aftermarket Replacement Cost
'+ Air Compressor and Dryer Assembly ($110) + Rear Air Springs ($130/spring) + Rear Shocks ($40/shock) = TOTAL: Over $450 (and that still doesn't include replacing electronic components that are known to fail such as the height sensors).

The various parts that comprise the air suspension system on the 2005-2009 Saab 9-7x must function in sync. When one part is broken, the system fails. This dependency on complicated electrical components is expensive and time-consuming. Strutmasters' air to non-air suspension conversion kit is an affordable direct replacement solution to this dilemma. The kit, manufactured in America, includes two cold-wound steel coil springs and two rear shocks tuned just for the 9-7x. Built to save time and frustration for the Saab owner, the kit can be installed in as little as one hour per wheel. Strutmasters offers unparalleled customer service, too. A Lifetime Limited Warranty, ASE certified support technicians, and online installation videos are just a few of the perks our customers enjoy. Not to mention, the kit is vastly less expensive than alternative options. A closer look at three different prices will shed light on the considerable savings: that of repairing the air suspension system directly at the Saab dealer, that of installing aftermarket air parts, and that of installing a Strutmasters air to non-air suspension conversion kit on the 9-7x. It's time to say goodbye to the faulty air ride and hello to this quality, reliable replacement.
