SOLD ... PENDING PAYMENT<p>So, I have been working on this kit for awhile, and decided I need to money more than I need the kit. Almost all of the parts are new, or very close to it. The struts probably have only 1,000 miles on them. The springs are brand new. Here is a list of exactly what has been used to make this kit. This is ready to bolt right on.

Re: DIY Bilstein Coilovers (pwebb)

If you are refering to the aluminum upper perch, there is no welding. I custom made that part to fit exactly inside the spring and then rest inside the upper rubber mount. These litterally bolt right on, just as a normal strut setup would be. <br>Here is a closeup of the perch you may be refering to. I made these on my fathers mill/lathe out of a solid piece of aluminum.<br><IMG SRC="http://lh6.ggpht.com/_WnaBw1iKCOk/SghQyrtLCnI/AAAAAAAADTs/UcK_jihOFrI/s144/Seat%20%28small%29.gif.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Hope that helps.<br>

Re: DIY Bilstein Coilovers (pwebb)

I am sorry, I forgot to post that on the previous thread. I never actually installed them. I did do quite a bit of research online and got some good referances from other members of tried spring rates and length. My goal was to have it just a little bit tighter than stock.

Do you still have them? Do you think they will fit a 00 V70R? I believe the front suspension is essentially the same as 850s and non awd 70s? I am interested.

Re: DIY Bilstein Coilovers (blacksleeperr)

I do still have them. I am unsure if they will fit the V70R, so maybe ask around first.

Re: (jarediii)

Do you know the part number on the Bilstein touring struts? This should give me some indication if they will work on my car. Thanks

Re: (blacksleeperr)

From the FCP Groton website (where they were originally purchased) they read the following. <p>Part Number: VNE-4579-BE OEM Number: 9140072, 8600901, 9191419. <p>When you go to their website, search for VNE-4579-BE and it will show you all the models it will work for. Hope this helps.
