Most of the comfort and stability of a good ride inside the Saab vehicle relies on how well your suspension system works. With the Saab known for its best performance, there is no denying that the assembly of the entire vehicle components is greatly thought of. The suspension system is responsible for maintaining the correct wheel alignment and vehicle's ride height while controlling the vehicles direction and reducing the effect of the shock forces the drive is giving the automotive. In short, it supports the vehicle's weight as it keeps the tires in contact with the road. To do this, the suspension is built up of a couple of parts to be able to do its purpose. Since it is a system, it needs all this parts to function well for the benefit of its performance.
These parts include the shock absorbers, springs, struts, and even the tires. The springs alone cannot handle the constancy of the suppression the vehicle imposes during the ride, so reinforcements are installed together with it. This is where the struts and the shock absorbers come in. The shock absorbers dampen the sudden shocks by dissipating the kinetic energy brought by the vehicles action. The strut acts similarly to the shock absorber; however the strut has an available assembly that includes all of the basic parts including the shock absorber in one unit. This is called the MacPherson strut, which is the most popularly used strut in the new models of the automotives in this generation. This is preferred mostly because of the practicality of its used, since you can install these both on the front and the rear suspensions in most vehicles, unlike the Chapman strut. The Chapman strut is almost the same with the MacPherson strut in purpose with an exception: the Chapman strut can only be used in the rear suspension of the car.
For the MacPherson strut though, you need to replace the whole strut assembly when damaged. But this doesn't mean it is not a wise choice because the unit is easy to install anyway. For your Saab vehicle, you can choose the type of strut assembly you want but make sure that the assembly matches the specifics of your vehicle.
