Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

Yes, you could use the stock shocks with the Eibach springs but what you'll get is essentially stock handling that is only slightly improved.

The Eibachs are as soft as the stock ones, just shorter. The rears are actually progressive which makes it more comfortable than stock but causes more understeer.

I have the Eibachs and Koni dampers. I wish I went with Swedish Dynamic or Abbott springs instead. The dampers are what improved the handling. The rear stock dampers are strangely stiff and caused the back end to look "lifted".

Note: I need to keep the Konis on full stiff in the rear and 2/3 stiff front to get the good handling. It's very soft if I have the Konis on soft with the Eibachs. I'm betting that the Viggen springs with Konis is a nice combo. Better yet, Abbott or Swedish Dynamics.

A general rule of thumb that is that the order of suspension upgrades goes; dampers, bushings, swaybars, and then springs. This is not always correct but it seems to work with the Saab.

The best handling fixes I've had were the steering rack brace, Konis, and rear swaybar in that order. I also did the TCA bushings which improved steering feel. None of these things eliminates the tramlining.

ps. Tire pressures 38psi front, 36psi rear.

Best of luck,
Bill
