Water is right,im sure i can find a compressor or rent one. i need to know if i have to remove and take out the strut to do it, i mean how else am i going to get the old spring off and new one on.
what about putting the car up on jackstands and use a floor jack on the hub to decompress the spring...and then remove the spring?
Also, did you have to get an alignment afterwards?
did you need a coilover kit?
I'd rather go brawl with a bear lol.MAKE SURE when you loosen the compression nut you DO NOT have the top of the strut pointing at your body in case the spring compressors slips or come off. If that happens you may be drinking through a straw for a few months like my buddy....lol

Thanks for the help. Now all i need is the springs.
i guess im capable if i can change out rotors and pads.Nah...don't brawl with an old bear man...Struts are easy to do. If I can do it you can too. Just got to be careful that's all.
Once you get them out they are easy to change springs and stuff. I wouldn't pay to have them replaced.
If you have any questions just ask. Lots of smart/experienced people on this website.
Besides if your going to trick out your ride what fun is it if you don't do it yourself...
Yup. Saab 9-3 coilovers fit with slight modifications. Megan racing makes a set for about a grand. There's a lot of info over on G6performance on them.Does anybody know exactly what kind of coil overs to use on a 2007 base model sedan? I want to drop it down after I dip it and get some new rims. Just wondering what kind of coil overs. I have heard rumors of Saab coil overs
