Re: Please post pics if you have Heico, Eibach, or H&R springs (USAF 2010 T5)

Eibach pro kit, OEM performance handling package, I DO have camber arms (they were absolutely necessary. I could not drive it without having them installed.) I think the back needs to be dropped a bit more...<p><IMG SRC="http://i480.photobucket.com/albums/rr170/S40Racer/DSC02710-1-1.jpg" BORDER="0">

But those are coil-overs right?

Nope. Straight springs. The perfomance handling package was an option from Volvo... Handling is decent, but nothing like you'd get from coilovers...

Re: (USAF 2010 T5)

haven't got a camber kit, but I think that tire wear is not that bad, because I still have 16" wheels... might be worse with 18" or so... ?!<br>(just my guess)<br>I've experienced tire wear not much different to the stock height...<p>

heico coilovers = amazing! <p>i know you said no coil overs but if you can afford them they are the way to go. <p><A HREF="http://s240.photobucket.com/albums/ff312/avansloten/?action=view¤t=IMG_4274.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://i240.photobucket.com/albums/ff312/avansloten/IMG_4274.jpg" BORDER="0"></A>

I have H&R... love them. I also have the rear camber arms. I don't see how anyone would lower the S40 without putting those arms on. Even with the adjustable arms it still not perfect, without the camber kit it's ridiculous how much the tires lean in. The tire cupping gets pretty bad very quickly.<p> <IMG SRC="http://photos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-snc1/v351/141/112/23400346/n23400346_43051564_1473.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: (Vash13)

Tires were 235's and I did NOT roll the fenders. I did get some slight rubbing when the car was full of people and I took a corner a little too hard.

This car's stance looks pretty good. The owner say the springs are Evolve 1.3" F , 1.5" R , though I can't find those specs in the Evolve site.<p><IMG SRC="http://memimage.cardomain.com/ride_images/3/2102/4741/30254870066_large.jpg" BORDER="0">
