I'm considering putting Billsteins on my '05 V70 2.4 MT but, wonder if I should put anti-sway bars on first when I replace the drivers front axle assembly OR would I save on labor if this is all done simultaneously, ie anti-sway bars, Billstein struts and axle assembly?
I had Billsteins and front anti-sway on my previous '99 V70 turbo AT that handled great.
I'm just not sure the proper order for these upgrades

What mileage?
I would do all at once, it should save you some money (and time) doing all this work together

Only(lowering) springs?

Tech suggested replacing springs w/struts & shocks but, it seems all the ones I find are lowering springs?
Also, Elevate A/S bars not available for base V70. I guess IPD is the only option?

+1 for JRL, who gets to play with dozens of these cars over the years. I would do the same changes he suggests.
OK, due to time and $$ constraints, what order should upgrades be done?

Getting conflicting info, I was going for the Bilsteins/new springs first but, it was suggested to do the anti-sway/strut brace first. I also found out Elevate doesn't make A/S for the base V70.
Having timing/serp belts, water pump done soon at 100K miles

Really perplexed by these suspension upgrades
