Are they still new or did you ever install them?

I bought the set two years ago and put the rear springs in my R. The fronts I sold to PK. The drop is 40mm as he said.

Hello P K,<p>How stiff a ride are they? Also, any sense as how they will change the handling of my 98 V70 AWD if the rear springs/nivomat setup is left unchanged? I may expect a trend to more oversteer?<p>Regards, PEter

Peter, <br>I'm sorry - as I never installed these I'm not going speculate how they would affect the handling. <p>Cheers.<br>
