A few years back I went to boost my battery and crossed the wires on my 2004 Saab 9-3. It is the worst thing you can do. Ended up costing almost $5000 to repair as the whole engine operating systems were fried. Car has not been the same since. Doors open and close still are intermittent, but not prepared to spend any more money. So last thing that is bothering me is Distance to empty on my SID it increases as you drive rather than decrease. Would be nice if that were the case but not so. Any ideas?? FYI when I start the care it reflects reasonably the correct distance to empty but as you drive it increases.

I found a set used complete (Quick Strut) but they are off a Saab that had a 6 cylinder engine. What would be the ride height difference and would they create any premature ware on the rest of the front component's?
