99 Turbo suspension Tommi Järvinen 21.1.2019, 00:11 Saab 99 Turbo 1978 After the car was painted it was time to start putting some parts on the body shell. First job was to install the suspension components. When the clear coat had hardened sufficiently I proceeded to apply cavity wax to all the appropriate places, like inside the side panels and the fender welding joints. The 99 front springs are not the easiest to install, requiring a lot of compression to fit. Especially with the stiffer springs the car has it can be somewhat exciting… I also test fitted the old Bilstein racing shocks. I need to send them to be rebuild. Rear axle in place. New disks for the brakes and the refurbished calipers with new pistons and seals. Same goes for the front end. New disks and refurbished calipers. Also all new brake hoses and parking brake cables. Test fitting the Incas on the Turbo… Looking nice!

What is the red wire on the front brakes for ? What a fantastic colour. Tommi Järvinen 12.2.2019 at 08:18 2 months ago Reply Hello James. Thanks for the comments. The red wire is just a spring to hold the caliper in the frame. Andy M 23.1.2019 at 21:36 3 months ago Reply I have just read this from start to finish (while I should have been working!). Inspirational work, totally stunning. I wish I had your skills, and garage. Can’t wait for the next installment. It is hard enough doing the work but extra special that you are taking pictures and logging your progress. Thank you for taking the time to share.
