Ouch! What a pain in the rear. This is a tough job. On the other hand, it handles GOOOOOOOOODD! I just had it alligned this morning at Volvo of Cerritos (I even liked the service dept)Then I put on my new 17" OZ Superleggarra wheels with Sumitomo HTR + 225/45/17 and ripped up my neighborhood. I would highly recommend the strut and shock combo. The Jury is still out on the springs however. They lowered the front more than advertised (more like 45mm not 30mm) Let me know what you think. Is ther a poster board for photos here?
