Hey guys my name is john and live in the philly area. I just bought a 2000 saab 9-3 hatch back, there is only one issue with it and thats a vibration under accelaration but as soon as i let off the gas it smooths out i took it to a shop and they said it was my front right lower control arm, is that correct? i also hear a popping / clunking coming from there too, any help will be much apprieciated.

yes it's the control arm, either that or the drive axel. I had to have that replaced on my c900 cause it vibrated under acceleration and whenever I got above 45 MPH. It also sounds like ball joints to me. Oh, and welcome, pics are a must on here. Turbo 9-3?

I would bet your issue is a combination of two things....a worn control arm and inner driver. I had a 2002 9-3 and I had the same exact issue. It's a pretty common problem with 900's and 9-3's. Post some pictures of your car. Welcome to TSL!
