FS:VOLVO lowered/sport suspension kit for P2 V70 - *reasonable offers accepted*

Hi,<p>Had this suspension sitting in storage for about four years after buying it but finding it a bit too firm for our rough New England roads - oh, and my wife said "I think not."<p>It can't have more than a 1000 miles on it, springs, struts, and sport nivomats all have some surface rust. I *think* all the parts are there, but an not 100% sure. <p><IMG SRC="http://www.promosis.com/harry/suspension_small.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://www.promosis.com/harry/bag_small.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://www.promosis.com/harry/parts_small.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://www.promosis.com/harry/shock_small.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://www.promosis.com/harry/shocks_small.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://www.promosis.com/harry/strut_small.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://www.promosis.com/harry/struts_small.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Cost to me 4+ years ago was $700.

Hi,<p>The springs are lower and firmer than those of the stock T5, and the shocks & struts provide a firmer ride to provide better handling and agility. <p>I don't know in inches how much lower the springs are or how the dampening rates differ - sorry.<p>Thanks,<p>Harry

Re: (Boomin850)

Mike,<p>All parts are Volvo. I've read that Ohlins make them, and I've ready that Sachs make them - the shocks & struts anyway. I *assume* Volvo makes the springs. I would tend to think Sachs is the correct answer, but I have no proof either way.<p>Best,<p>Harry J

Re: (dhd1)

Hi,<p>Brett, I'm sorry you're not able to view them. I can send them to you if you like.<p>dhd, they do indeed lower and stiffen the suspension. The car rides like it is on proverbial rails. I'm not sure how much the car is lowered - I think .5 inches, but I'm not positive. I'll look around and see what I can see.<p>Best,<p>Harry
