Re: Just fewer and fewer on the ground - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
Just took my 1994 Aero on a round trip Chicago - Detroit and also got about 28+ MPG, which included construction-related traffic jams. What seemed like tire balance issues at high speed led to me taking a look under the car; I found that several of the suspension components need replacement, particularly the rear bushings of the front control arms.
If you replace these bushings, note that the Febi version that I just installed is a VERY tight fit over the spindle on the control arm - much tighter than any of the previous parts that I have installed in 15+ years of 9000 ownership. I tried and liked the poly version of this, but didn't like the squeaking in cold weather. I did use a leftover spindle tube to hammer the new bushings in place.
