Would s60r springs work on a 2001 T5? Would it provide a 1" drop? If not, what springs would do this. I don't want the car to be too slammed since I do alot of highway driving.<p>Thanks

check this link <A HREF="http://www.eurosporttuning.ca/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Category_Code=VL-S60-su" TARGET="_blank">Eurosporttuning</A><br>I would assume that a set of factory spring would cost alot more them these

then look at TME springs.<p>they focus more on stiffness vs. drop

Volvo has a version of the Eibach Pro Kit they sell for the S60 T5. I had it on my old T5 and it looked great. Maybe a 1" drop at the most.

Self-Leveling is? Reason I ask is that many of the springs on EST for example state that they are for cars without self-leveling. Does this mean they are not compatible? Please advise. Thanks...<p>

Rear self leveling are Nivomats, optional on certain wagons, you don't have them, the above will fit your car
