My dealer (Fields Volvo in Waukesha, WI) did it for around $160 which I thought was reasonable. They said it wasn't necessary to disconnect the shocks electrically so no SUM recalibration was needed (and thus less $$--kudos to Fields for integrity). <p>My limited initial impression is that, tentatively, the side-hop seems better, which is great since that was the only reason for me doing this. More time, and travel over the more problematic roads around here, will tell. So far so good though. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: IPD rear sway just installed (kenschel)

Sounds good...having mine installed on Monday. Guess I should mention there is no need to disconnect the shocks. <p>Looking forward to any more comments over the weekend from your new upgrade <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Make sure your (rear toe) alignment is to the latest spec

Re: IPD rear sway just installed ("R" Kelly)

Basic alignment is the same as any V70<br><B>THE REAR TOE SHOULD BE SET TO 0.16 +/- 0.1 DEGREES</B><br><U>This should be along with the new bushing install</U><br>(That was copied from the Volvo TNN in front of me)
