hard to tell from the photo.. but the rear shock has a piece near its bottom that supports the bottom of the spring. So I suspect that piece broke off, without seeing a better photo. If that's the case, be sure to replace both rear shocks..
best bet is to take a picture zoomed out a bit.. or just do a search on the internet for a photo of the rear shocks for a saab 9-5 .. and you'll see what I'm talking about...
p.s. there also is a spacer/washer type piece that sits between the spring and shock.. if your shock is bad.. so you may need to replace that piece as well..
hope this helps,
