    There is something fitted to the saab cabriolets similar to this too. Would it really make much of a difference?

    The Saab cabriolet uses the cross brace because it flexes too much without it - not an issue with a car with a solid roof.

    It was said when the facelift came out that it was Front suspension bushes that were found in a Saab parts bin that made such a difference to the front-end handling.

    Thats interesting, I need to drop my subframe to do the clutch so it may be worth soucing some facelift bushes. I was told there was some extra bracing on the facelifts aswell though
