Hi Everyone. So i’m looking to get some input on a couple things.
I need to replace the strut assembly on the drivers side for my 2007 Saab 9-3 2.0t because the mount bearing is bad and creaking.
I bought a Quick Strut online a couple years ago, and it’s been working fine since then, but it just started creaking again like the original one that was on it before.
I purchased a used OEM strut off of ebay that appears to have the same exact problems, so now i’m trying to look for a new one and have two questions.
- What exactly do the color codes mean that are on the OEM struts? Like Blue vs Red/Purple, Sport vs non-Sport suspension, etc. I’ve seen these terms thrown around online and haven’t found any concrete answers on what colors mean what kind of suspension.
- Does anybody know of any reliable vendors that sell used OEM struts that have the best chance of NOT having a bad mount bearing, and are decently priced? The only option I’ve found for decently priced OEM struts are off ebay, and the rest of the options on there look like ones picked out of junkyards.
