Hi all,<P>I recently noticed an increasing amount of wheel gap in my front wheel wells. It is especially noticeable on the passenger side. I compared the amount of space between the top of the tire and the fender lip to my friend's GLT, and the GLT seemed to be lower than my precious R. Is my rear suspension sagging and causing my front to raise up? My 850R has 65k and is on all original suspension components. I think that 850R comes with the perfect ride height stock and I want it back. What should I do?<P>

Yea my 850 Wagon is starting to show suspension wear at around 75K (at 83K now).<P>I have been looking at <BR> <A HREF="http://www.ipdusa.com" TARGET=_blank>http://www.ipdusa.com</A> <BR>and<BR> <A HREF="http://www.easternaerospace.com" TARGET=_blank>http://www.easternaerospace.com</A> <BR>trying to pick out what my next step will be. I don't think i want to drop 2K on suspension for my non-turbo, but for an R the EA website has a really nice setup <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>

I should measure mine sometime. Hey, someone with experience in this matter, how long should a volvo suspension last. I went with 50 series tires, what a mistake, now I have like an extra half inch of wheel gap, hehe.

depends where u drive. i'd say if u've got 100k miles..then it's time to change. maybe even earlier if u feel the ride is getting choppy and/or floaty.
