So ........ Think my front suspension is knackered. Is it worth upgrading or going with Volvo units ???

Should I just replace the front or do all 4 ??

Opinions please

Cheers

with that many miles, Id would go with a full replacement... and since that would be the best option, i would upgrade to something aftermarket...

Stupid question here. How can you tell if something is wrong with your suspension? I have almost 120,000 miles on my car and have noticed that it is starting to ride real hard over the bumps in the interstate. Feels almost like the wheels are bouncing over them. The tires are new and pressure is about 36lbs all around.

thanks

Its hard to tell when suspension goes bad only because its a gradual process...

However if you say your wheel is bouncing all over the place... id say thats a tell tale sign you need to replace your stuff.

With new suspension your acceleration along with braking will be greatly improved...

I replaced my front struts. I knew that I had a problem when my tires were bouncing over pot holes. I also heard some metal on metal contact.
