K guys...well my anniversary present from the boyfriend arrived...thats right good ol lowering springs

Now my question is....Do i really need to replace the stock struts before or while I'm putting on these springs? And if those in the area know any local shops that can do it that'd be great too.

On my NG900 I installed Abbott coils without swapping out the OEM struts. I ran the car for over a year that way without any problems until some lady T-boned me. The only argument for doing the struts at the same time is the savings in labour.

They will need to be replaced but as of now they are fine with just the springs. Although i do highly reccomend getting some konis they are AMAZING.

Any saab dealership should be fine to install them for you, I use a small dealership that is nothing big but they sell a few used saabs and they do all my after market mods.

I second the comment that the stock struts neeing to be replaced along with the springs. if they are the originals, it would not be long with a lowered suspension before the struts would be shot.
