I had Elevate springs on my S40. Super comfortable and handling was great, kept the stock shocks/struts until 155k miles. Lowers the car at 80k.

I have H&R Sports on my C30 along with Koni Orange shocks and struts.
Quite low in the front but not as low as I hoped in the back
Along with the Konis it really doesn't affect the ride that much. Feels pretty much like factory but with better handling and looks.

As I've said in other areas.... These general sections if SwedeSpeed see very little traffic. Post in the S60 section for more activity with your model.

I guess admittedly, the S60 isn't the most common platform for modifications. The P2Rs see all sorts of crazy mods, but from a suspension standpoint, those are AWD.

P1s see a lot of activity too, but the regular P2s aren't as popular with the "tuner" crowd.

Anyone using vogtland springs?
I have Vogltand springs. A little stiff but that is what I wanted. I used stock shocks/struts with them and lasted for a few years. Fronts finally went out and I picked up the koni strts on sale. Used for a few months but I Just bought coilovers tho and will be switching out.

I have some H&R springs in my 2002 s60. So far I love them. The drop is a perfect amount but I'm not tucking any tire yet:p Anyways, the ride, while not being too uncomfortable, is stiffer and personally I like the handling and feeling much more than the stock springs. The install wasn't a walk in the park but it was simple nonetheless. All in all, I couldn't be happier with the springs, they preform great and look great too.
