If my 9-5 has bilstein suspention, will sway bars be the same?

I'm wondering as my sway bar link on my passenger side has failed (actually the nut came off and it bent).

Ie, will stock saab oem sway links fit even though aftermarket struts are in or do I need to go to bilstein?

Any upgrades possible in this general area that I am replacing (poly mounts maybe)? Thanks

Use stock links. the tabs on the struts are in the same place.

yes they fit but you must disconnect both ends at the same time or else if you do one at a time they wont line up..

Sometimes you have to jack up the control arm and strut to help with the fit.
