2007 V70 AWD.

I'm having problems finding the correct Eibach springs for my car, and there's been rumors of them stopping production for this car specifically.

Thing is, I live in Norway, and we have insanely rigid inspections, meaning lowering springs need to be TUV-certified and approved and registered to the car at a local equivalent of the DMV. Eibach is the only TUV-certified I've come across.

1) Anyone have an Eibach specific part number? Thing is, it's a diesel (185hp D5), so it's probably a long shot asking on SS.

2) I would like to maintain a level of comfort, which is why I'm not considering coilovers. Would springs from an R AWD be mechanically possible to fit, or do they need the 4C shocks?

3) Would S60 AWD springs give me any sort of a drop in height?

Thanks for any input

Yes.
Use either S60 or V70 AWD springs
You need a chassis code to order springs
I have a US chassis code if you need one.
I lowered a 2006 last year. Personally I think the ride height came out perfectly for an XC and the ride was great!

With V70AWD springs, 17" wheels and fairly huge, 235/55/17 tires:

Found the part number at Eibach, after alot of navigating their poorly translated german site. Hopefully it won't take too long, I have roughly 10cm clearance between the tire and wheel housing.

I don't think they're available anymore
I had them on my 2002 S60AWD ... back in 2003!

I am very interested - but there's a few bumps. First of all, you'll have to ship to Norway. Second, since it's in Europe, I would need the TUV certificate for the springs, to get them inspected and approved. They are for the V70 AWD 05-07? Or S60?

What are you asking?
