Where to Find Spring Mount Bushing?

The 900 has the creak-creak tired front end sounds going on. I'm fairly sure the bushing on the bottom of the spring seat is bad. I've checked all the usual places (eeuro/saabsite) with no luck. Is there a generic bushing I can get to replace this (I'm a whiz at photoshop):



Also while I'm at it should I replace anything else as a preventative measure?

Thanks much.

Moog makes a kit. Part #K9461 JC Whitney's site shows the whole kit. Most other online retailers just show the rear bushings (in engine bay) but in the description it states "both front and rear bushings" which means front and rear of the upper control arm, not front and rear of the car I'm guessing. Unless it means front and rear of the engine bay end of the control arm??

You may want to order them through your local NAPA to be sure that you are getting the whole kit. Or call eeuroparts and see if they can get you the kit and tell you if all the bushings on the arm are included.

Another thought...

I wonder if the same bushings that fit on the end of the control arm in the engine bay also fit in the spring perch end?

It's hard to tell without pulling everything apart initially. I'll give e-euro a call and see if they have a better idea. I'll post back in a bit with more info. Thanks!

I've checked with almost everyone I know who would have ever had the opportunity to replace them--Saab indies and even Jon Williams. Noone I asked has ever replaced those bushings. Not a part that wears out often I guess.

Yeah I've called around a bit as well. I spoke to eeuro today, and they were able to dig up the attached diagram with a part number, but it has to be special ordered and will run $25.

curious if you ever found Saab 900 Spring Seat Bushing...post from you in 2009 so LONG time ago, but figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.

Thanks!

I think......#15 in this diagram is what you want. I'd call to confirm.
