Chip, you have a 9-3 SE right? if so, you should have a 24mm sway bar up front, the Viggen's is only 22mm.
3 cheers for poly bushings, stay tuned for some pics.

|TK900SE||Dont forget about the little guys! The bushings. upgrading those will also increase your handeling without changing the anti roll or sway bars|

|Maarten||Duh.........you already beat me to it|
|01-05-2004 03:40 PM|
|Maarten||oh, and before you're going to ask: "Where can I get one?", here's the link toMP Performance|
|01-05-2004 03:40 PM|
yeah i have seen abbots and the one from ginuinsaab.... where is this one? and are there any benfits to the more expensive ones?
I like to do things right... note the konis and eibachs i would rather wait till i get the money than get a cheeper solution.
|01-05-2004 03:37 PM|
BTW the mods you've already done are very nice

|Boxerchip||as of now i have eibach springs, konis, stage 2 anti roll, forge BOV, intake/heat sheld. The problem is one the tires... first of all the SUCK... anytime i floor it in 1st even if its towards the end it spinns im sure this is a commen problem but i would still like to atleast make it better. as far as the front anti roll bar i just saw/felt the difference the rear one made and figued if i could do the same with the front it would kick ass. im always looking for ways to make my car handel tighter.|

What problem are you trying to solve by fitting Viggen spec anti-rollbars?
You've already fitted the uprated rear anti-rollbar. If there's still too much bodyroll, try stiffer springs and shocks first. Eibach progressive springs in conjunction with Koni adjustable shocks will improve handling a lot.
If oversteer is the problem, get some sticky tires. Bridgestone S03's are very good.
Please post a list of mods done to your car. It will be easier to find a solution if we know the exact specs of your SAAB.

|Boxerchip||so what i want is a viggen front brace... but where can i get one?|
|01-05-2004 02:34 PM|
oh hot ok thanks!
we need more people as helpful as you here
|01-05-2004 01:14 PM|
I would not recommend stiffer front anti-rollbars to improve handling. It will probably get worse instead.
For the Viggen SAAB used a softer front anti-rollbar to reduce oversteer. Hirsch Performance does the same on their tuned SAAB's. The idea behind this is that a very stiff rear anti-rollbar can cause oversteer when cornering at very high speeds.
This thread on Saabscene might be interesting if you want to know more about front/rear anti-rollbars.

|Boxerchip||stiffer... i did the rear one and it made SUCH a huge difference so if they made somthing like that for the front... i figured why not?|
|01-05-2004 11:59 AM|
Why do you want to change your front anti-rollbar?
Are you going to replace it with a stiffer or weaker item?
|01-04-2004 07:11 PM|
|Boxerchip||where can i get one?|
|01-04-2004 05:33 PM|
|WS||i dont think so....i think they only make front strut tower bars. I know the viggen comes with one...a lot of cars do|
|01-04-2004 09:42 AM|
do they make front anti roll bars?
if so where can i get one?
