NG spring compatibility

Are the front springs compatible between Sedans/Coupes and convertibles on the 94-98 NG's?

Whoever answers definitively gets an e-beer, on me!

You mean they are different between front and rear?

Maybe that is why my front end rides so low!



Seriously though, I had thought there was a different Koni Kit for 'verts so I just wanted to be sure...

To my knowledge all springs were not the same between 94-98. The front end in 96/97 was upgraded to a newer/better style suspension.

EDIT: thesaabsite goes by color of your springs. http://www.thesaabsite.com/900new/NG...suspension.htm

if they are why would the spring kits all be the same; and/or not require you to specify the car?

i know on my kit it did specify front and rear (because of the weight of the engine) but that was all. the stock front and rear look a little different. but the rest i really thought were the same. would make sense that the V6 would be different (heavier engine)

Think of it this way.. Manufacturer has to have all the cars at the same height regardless of options. This way a person can compare a base model manual 3 door to a V6 Cv that is certainly much heavier. Now in aftermarket a few mm is not a "major" issue. You will find the CV are heavier in the rear with auto V6 being heavy in the front. Just the short answer..

This ones for you!


Thanks guys, sounds like a set of SE springs for a 1997 2.0L 5spd will work just 'fine' on a 1995 2.0L 5spd Vert... better than the broken one, anyways!
