Hey everyone:<p>As soon as I get these brakes sorted, I will start saving for the suspension upgrades. I have seen alot about these Ohlin's suspension systems.<p>I was wondering if this system will work on the AWD cars with the independent rear suspensions and Nivomats. I have seen photos of Euro spec cars with this system. It lowers the car a little and they look fantastic. I also like the ability to change the settings. The photos I have seen only show the front suspension with the strut bars and the reservoirs. I guess it may be a little difficult to get photos of the rear suspension. In Europe there were also FWD R cars where there not?<p>On Volvotuning, in the parts database it lists an Ohlin's kit for the AWD cars. Anyone have more info? I know it's pricey, but damn does it look sweet.<p><IMG SRC="http://xpress.mine.nu/illegalracer/bilar/volvo/Daniel/V70R/HPIM0123.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://xpress.mine.nu/illegalracer/bilar/volvo/Daniel/V70R/HPIM0141.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>My questions.<p>1. Will it work on my car (1998 V70R AWD)?<br>2. How much will it lower the car?<br>3. Does this kit replace shocks/struts and springs?<br>4. Are there any suppliers other than Eastern Aerospace in the US?<br>5. Are there any associated Volvo part numbers?<br>6. Does anyone have any experience with this kit?<p>I think that is enough for now. Look forward to hearing from all of you. Thanks
