One of my springs broke as well, and I only had around 30k miles on it. Luckily it was still covered under warranty, so they replaced them both as a pair. This, along with LOTS of other problems I've had with this car, has me agreeing with the last message... I'd NEVER own another Saab!

I spoke with the Saab dealer whom sold me the springs last March, he told me there is an ongoing problem with many owners having to change springs, I have bought 2 x new springs and had them fitted total costs incl repair of damaged tyre £450, I will not be as originally planning purchasing another Saab, after sales are poor and excuses unacceptable when requested they honour warranty.

My 93 grand marquis has dropped a few inches on the passenger side between the fender and tire


If you have air ride suspension, you could have a leaking bag on one wheel, or a problem with one of the height sensors.
If you have standard coil springs, one of the springs may have broken.

Broken front coil springs


can't seem to locate any recalls for that issue. the replacement springs may not be up to the specifications that are called for. some of the cheap aftermarket replacements use to hard a steel (brittle) check that the correct spring is being installed.

Weak springs, or were they changed? You can change all the shocks you want but if springs are too weak, they will prematurely blow.

Transmission trouble


Transmission model is a 4R70W,totally electronic,no vacuum to the trans.A common failure on that transmission is the 1-2 accumulator springs...they break,causing a harsh 1-2 upshift.An accumulator is a mechanical/hydraulic assembly also called an accumulator piston.It is made from steel with rubber lip seals bonded to the steel.The accumulator piston takes a certain portion of the hydraiulic fluid produced when the 1-2 upshift happens,and strokes up and down with springs providing resistance.It acts as a hydraulic shock absorber for the 1-2 upshift,providing cushion.When the springs break,it no longer provides shock absorption,hence the harsh upshift.It is located just inside the trans pan,on the passenger side front of the case.It is retained in the case with a cover and a round snap ring about 2" in diameter.A new piston and springs can be purchased from a transmission repair shop,or better yet,have them check the assembly for broken springs.Good luck
