    What about ball joints/track rod ends or are they part of the arms?

    I had to change the rubber boot that covers the top of the front strut cos both of mine had split. I was told dealer only part. Cost about £30 iirc. Also fitted these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SAAB-93-9-...item35c33d0978 cos my springs were making a twang/clunk as I drove.

    Steering arms if doing all.
    Bushes on control arms maybe front front/rear and rear. Front shock ball bearing.
    Rear stabilizer link/shackle.

    I'd echo the front strut top bearing comment, having just changed mine. The mounts didn't look too bad, but the bearings were totally shot after 100K
