You can go with a K+W set up and get like a 2 1/4 " drop or check out <A HREF="http://www.airbagit.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.airbagit.com</A> . <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: h&r coilovers? (Volvo_girl)

Do not put airbags on your car, they are garbage.<p>I am interested in anyones input on any coilover setup for the s40, but I don't think anyone on the board has done this yet. Once my Evolve rims get delivered, supposidly by the 21st of april (two months in waiting), I will be picking up a set of KW or HR coilovers to replace my Eibach springs.<p>Nothing like a 2" drop on some 19x8.5'' rims.

don't diss airbags. ive installed several setups and the ride is oh-so-smooth. im working on my s40 bag setup now, since cutting my springs did not work.<p>plus, airbagit.com (aka: aim industries) are junk. their listed setup will not work for out models. i tried ordering, but the tecks have no idea how the 2005+ models are setup. the front strut is different design at the sprindle.

IMO , we are fortunate enough to have cars that aren't WAY TOO HIGH to begin with. some cars even after a 1 1/2 " lowering still look too high. but even a moderate 30 mm lowering looks sporty on our rides. I love it low as possible but I'm probably going to stick with the 1.3" Heicos.

Believe it or not, but 1300 bucks is cheap for a coilover for a volvo..

Re: H&R coilovers (volvos40t5)

why did you start another thread? You do realize that you started a thread called H&R coilovers 3 or 4 days ago and it is still on this first page.
