P2 XC70 Strut and Shock Options

Our 2003 XC70 now has over 154k on the clock and it is time to replace the suspension.<p>Are the Sachs (OEM) the only replacement struts and shocks that exist or has anyone found anything better on the market? Anyone have suggestions/recommendations?<p>IPD sway bars will likely be installed in the near future but the struts/shocks are the primary concern right now.<p>Thanks all!

Re: P2 XC70 Strut and Shock Options (roverhockey)

Some find the Bilstein Sport too stiff.... depends on use, types of roads, ride preference, use, etc. Some like the Bilstein touring, some like Koni. <p>Regarding the IPD sways..... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> !! I have had them on at least 5 of my Volvos. Best upgrade for the dollar u can make in car's handling. A good strut tower brace will improve road feel also.<p>Enjoy !

Re: P2 XC70 Strut and Shock Options (zeedragon)

Thanks for the feed back so far!<p>I've been told by my good friends at IPD (who I DO trust) that the only real option for the P2 XC70 are the Sachs shocks.<p>Do you guys have info on Bilsteins that will work in this application? I looked though the Bilstein site and couldn't find a recommendation from them for the 2003 XC70.<p>S
