Stronger Front Bushing Caps? - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
While under my car changing the oil, I noticed that a couple of the front suspension front position bushing caps are starting to crack. On my previous 9000, I replaced these a number of times with the ProParts Sweden cheapies, but they really didn't last. I have to guess that the genuine SAAB part might be better (a stronger or better cast alloy?), but the pictures of the part don't support this - looks exactly the same, identical image.
Is anyone aware of a stronger part? I seem to recall that Abbott in the UK had some made of steel at one time, but they don't seem to have anything currently - and haven't answered my email inquiry. Would like to replace these once more and never again.
