Had the hideous squeaks and squeals coming from the front end, feared major work, so I went to a shop for an opinion, luckily (well kind of), it was only the sucky rubber bushings atop the struts.<br>Well, what better time to upgrade??? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"><p>In an effort to keep a somewhat decent ride quality, went w/ OEM shocks and struts, but w/ H&R springs for a more solid stance. And I f'n love it, I've lowered a few cars/trucks over the years, and this is one of the best combo's I've felt yet.<br>Plus appearances are fan-tastic! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>thumbnails:<br><A HREF="http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a42/spikedZ31/lowered1.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a42/spikedZ31/th_lowered1.jpg" BORDER="0"> </A><br><A HREF="http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a42/spikedZ31/lowered2.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a42/spikedZ31/th_lowered2.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><br><A HREF="http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a42/spikedZ31/lowered3.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a42/spikedZ31/th_lowered3.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><br><A HREF="http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a42/spikedZ31/lowered4.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a42/spikedZ31/th_lowered4.jpg" BORDER="0"></A> <p>and side by side comparison....<br>before:<br><IMG SRC="http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a42/spikedZ31/volvo/chrome1.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>after:<br><IMG SRC="http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a42/spikedZ31/lowered1.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Pushing about 500 miles on the setup, so I am confident that it has settled to a stable point.<br>Yay for little and effective mods!<br>

Re: (cmurphy2266)

Well they are seriously attached to my car and being used, so if that is your question then yes.<p>Am I trying to 'pose' as a T model of any line? Not at all.<p>I like keeping within the Volvo fam for wheels, if I borrow a set from a big brother then it's all good. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (JonathanL)

Not really digging the wheels either but it does look nice lowered. But hey, if you like the wheels that's all that matters right!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
