Wow..pretty cool. How much did they cost you? Ever thought about using stiffer springs like H&R or OMP instead?<br>Let us know how eveything turns out.<p>Man, I think someone's Santa arrived late this time. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> Lots of toys, eh?

Re: Next project (The_one_n_only)

The shocks and struts cost me a little under $1600. All of the mods were actually done before Christmas, this is just the first chance I have had to post pictures. I know I could go stiffer with the H&R's, but I figured I would try the Ohlin's with IPD springs and sways and an OMP strut brace. I will also be adding a skidplate. I think all of that should tighten the car sufficiently. We'll see.

Re: Next project (larryo108)

Very nice. All from the dealer? Is there a dash mounted switch to adjust stiffness?<p>Looking forward to the end results! I'm going to need to shovel some extra driveways to get this kit. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>It officially looks like Larry either:<br>a.) is getting a nice tax refund <br>b.) won the lottery<br>c.) finally started spending the secret stash his family doesn't know about. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Next project (83caddy16v)

It would be C. Christmas bonus. The shocks and struts were ordered from <A HREF="http://www.myvolvoparts.com" TARGET="_blank">www.myvolvoparts.com</A>. My dealer wanted $1150 for the front struts alone and online I got them for like $970. I can supply you with part numbers or if the scanner here at work ever gets fixed I will scan the accessory bulletin I have.<p>Oh and NO. There is no dash mounted switch. That would be cool as hell though. The stiffness is adjusted at each reservoir mounted either under the hood or in the cargo area.<BR><BR>

Re: Next project (larryo108)

Larry, you should do a write up on this. Take lots of pics. Especially ones of how you adjust each shock. <p>Depending on my situation, I may get a 99 V70R over the 2004 Rs so I am highly interested in this.<p>RJ

Re: Next project (B518T)

The adjustment is only done by a selector knob with 8 settings.<br>1-2 is for ice / snow 3-5 for daily use and 6-8 for sport /race according the manual.

I wonder if repair kit for will be available in several years or will it be difficult to repair these items if they start to fail 30-50k down the road.

Re: Next project (larryo108)

Wow! How hard was the installation? Did you install them yourself or did you have someone do it for you? Man, I wish I got a Xmas bonus (any value)!

Anyone got a tissue, maybe even a towel? I need to wipe the drool off my monitor. Ohlins on all 4 corners is gonna be sweet. Awesome kit.
