Suspinshuns is here!



Finally got the Saab lowered. Went with the Eibach Pro Kit + Bilstein HD's. Needs an alignment so I didn't rag it too hard tonight, but I'm very pleased with the ride quality and I think it looks dead sexy.

I'll get more pictures in the daylight tomorrow, and expect a whole heaping mess of them once I get it cleaned up this week.

Haha, yeah. This was literally ten minutes after we put the rear of the car back on the ground and tightened the nuts on top of the struts. Went for enough of a test drive to make sure nothing fell off, and then voila - picture

Do you live in a "Housing Community"? aka a Trailer Park?

I used to own a Manufactured home in a housing community once...

Looks great, I love the viggens.... One thing though, alignment issues will cause the tires to wear a little bit, but there is no reason NOT to flog on it before that, ring it out...

You can only adjust toe on these cars anyway, no camber or castor adjustments available unfortunetely... By lowering the car it will automatically increase negative camber and this is a good thing for cornering, but bad on tire wear. Remember to rotate them often to keep a set living for any length of time... Looks Good!

Goddamn that looks great man. I usually don't care for the NG 900/9-3s but WOW.

I love the rally lights too, which I think I said 100 times when you installed em.
