Question about 1997 Saab 900

1 Answer

Front End Shake

My 1997 Saab 900 has 164,000 miles on it. I have taken it into a couple of different shops for a front end shake that happens anywhere between 50-70 mph. No one seems to know whats wrong with it. I've had the tires rotated and balanced and a front end alignment. It still shakes! I haven't been in any sort of accident so I don't think it could be an akle. Is this something that happens with Saabs over time? Or do you have any other suggestions?

    It shakes in the steering wheel (hands) - mostly it shakes when I take my foot off the accelerator at high speeds (not when I brake).

The most common problem I see with this complaint is a bent rim or rims. So regardless if you balance the tires and rotate them, you will still have a vibration. I assume you have more than one bent rim because it still shakes even after rotation. You will have far more vibration if a bent rim is on the front. That is why people usually rotate a bent rim to the back.

Front end shakes upon acceleration


when you accelerate the torque(twisting motion)is lifting the front of the car(hence wheelspin), taking the weight off the lower control arms(no weight = more movement)so when you coast, the full front end weight is on the front suspension = no shake....

When i drive it it shakes really bad it has new tires and have hade them balensed severl times


The front end of the vehicle has several parts that cause the front end to shake. Have you had the front end checked for bad tie rod ends, That is the most common problem.Another thing when does it shake? If it shakes while applying the brakes it could be the rotors need to be turned or it could be both the tie rod ends or the rotors.
