Could this be the end.
Posted by Saaberite (more from Saaberite) on Tue, 12 Nov 2019 22:23:23
This is the really the hardest decision for me to make; keep her or say goodbye. I've been a SAAB owner since 1983. Cureently my daily driver is a beautiful Lemans Blue, 5 sp manual, garage kept 96 9000 CS, upgraded to full pressure Turbo with 139K; only owner. Car spent all but its 1st 6 months in North Central FL. Runs great, manual trans shifts smoothly. There are a couple minor issues which I'd planned on tackling like remote doorlocks etc.. A few months ago, I replaced both front hubs and most of the front end bushings. The left wheel bearing was shot, really shot. However, ever since, I've been hearing that bad bearing sound coming from the right side, which aggravated me to no end. Couldn't tell where the sound was coming from, so I did nothing. It has since gotten loader/worst. I can't seem to pinpoint which bearing is bad, but I doubt it's the wheel bearing since its new. I just placed the car on jack stands and ran it in gear, but I cannot duplicate the same noise with the wheels off the ground. As a matter of fact, I can hear the noise better when sitting in the car. All other bearings seems like they are a PITA to replace & I losing the drive to tackle that kind of repair. So, I'm asking for you all for your advice, should I keep her or should I say goodbye to her? To be honest, I don't even know what I'd replace it with if I do let her go.
Thanks in advance
