opinions on upgrades made this week

Just wanted to give an opinion. So i did the SAS sways and new endlinks, what a difference i am very impressed with the handling change that it makes, highly recommend. I also did drilled and slotted rotters with hawk hps pads, did not see a dramatic increase. Nick i am still waiting on my stainless brake lines.

Those sound like a great set of subtle modifications. The handling increase is definately the most noticeable change whenever you upgrade the suspension and chassis of pretty much any Saab.

On to the brakes: I think that the 9-5 brakes are pretty good as they sit, so you may not notice a huge increase in brute braking force but they will resist fading much better and last longer than the OEM components. I did an all around upgrade of my ng900 with EBC redstuff pads and EBC dimpled and slotted rotors along with a full flush and bleed and it made a huge difference. However, the difference came when you start going through backcountry roads where the aggressive pad compound warms up and really comes into its own.
