SAAB 93 coilovers on 08 malibu

Hey guys, I need some insight before I actually go ahead and buy these coilovers from megan racing. I did a search on here and did find that the saab 93 coilovers fit malibus and g6s but the person who did it has an 07 malibu. Not the new 7th generation malibus. I believe that the 7th gens do share the epsilon platform but they are in fact an "extended" platform. Now with this being said, do you think I have a chance to still use the coilovers from the saab onto an 08 malibu even though the platform is slightly different? Thanks in advance guys

The platforms are very similar so they should fit. You try calling and asking? Maybe a discount for you to try it out?

I have not had a chance to call today, stupid cold had me in bed sick all day I will give them a buzz tomorrow and post their response on here. Im sure alot of guys would be interested because as of now, us 7 gen guys are limited to either eibach or h&r springs. Atleast if these megan racing coilovers can fit alot of us can opt for a more EXPENSIVE suspension that can be adjusted to your preference.

Re: SAAB 93 coilovers on 08 malibu

Whoops forgot to update you guys on this lol but basically I took the car to a shop and the guy said it could work, it just depends on what types of modifications needed to be done. He's researching it more currently and should let me know within a week. If this works I'll be the first 7 gen with coilvers =D *fingers crossed*

Well I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for your updates on this post for sure. I tried talking with Ground Control to see if they could work some coilovers for us but I heard crickets on that and the idea died there. If the megan coilovers can work then I'm definitely on board as well. Keep us posted please.
