|cking1975||Yes the Koni front strut setup sucks on the Saab 9-5...I recommend going more towards the stiff side on the ajustments...I went right in the middle and it is too soft in my opinion...but now I have to take them off to adjust the ride...it sucks|
|07-02-2010 03:38 AM|
so it did not matter that i have turned them while they were not fully compressed...
any recommendations or just leave them as they are?

|Raven18940||To adjust the shocks you compress them fully and then turn the shaft while they're fully compressed.|

Now i only want to know how to adjust those front and rear shocks. What is recommended as i have the koni sport kit that includes the springs. (-30...-40mm)
do i just need to turn the silver pipe that goes in the shock to left or right??

Those metal plates look like they slip over the rear dampers and become the spring platform???? you would only need 2 as you have 1 per side
|07-01-2010 09:49 PM|
how to adjust them then? because now they are not the same.
and where do those metal round plates go?

|Chadwick||Shouldn't there be much more strut rod sticking out in that last photo? That looks way too short.|
|07-01-2010 09:34 AM|
so it should be like this?
If these shocks are adjustable how can you do that?
isnt it so that you adjust them from the top?
|07-01-2010 09:11 AM|
Well it would be great if you could give me some pics where those plastics are going.
Can you see from the picture i attached those yellow bump stops? First i was thinking that they were packing matterial and almost placed them in the trashbin.. i see that the original bumpstops are longer and a lot softer,
But im still wondering hy is there no manual with this kit?
|07-01-2010 08:48 AM|
the front swap is easy i can send you some pics of my install on my 9-5 i did the full koni kit with vogtland springs as well its much easyer than it looks. and on the bump stops i think it would all depend on condition i re-used mine but they only had 40k on them and looked like new so i guess it would be more of personal preference. good luck
and the white plastic peices slide down the strut
|07-01-2010 08:27 AM|
started on the front and I just removed the passenger side damper and spring.
Do you know if i need to re-use the bump stops? Or if there is a difference between left and right side.

bought yellow koni sport kit for my 95.
received it from PFS but this is what i found:
Same for rear dampers.
The springs looked used
after contacting PFS paul and alex told me that i would get a new one free or charge, i only had to ship everything back.
so 6 weeks later i received them....
The shocks and springs look fine, no damage.
But now im wondering if i am missing 1 metal ring. because i only have 3...
Also where can i find the manual how to install them. I have no clue where all those white plastic parts are going.....
I checked http://photo.platonoff.com/Auto/2007...nt_Suspension/
and its seems rather ok, but platonoff is not using any koni´s...
so if anybody can tell me where those 3 rings are going and all those white plastics i would be a happy person....
