Seems like there is a lot more questions than answers regarding suspension, so im posting my suspension setup. From what I feel, this is a good package that can be used as a daily driver, and still have some fun. Handles the terrible SoCal roads well and the wife doesn’t mind the ride

1999 V70 T5M –

Currently on stock 16” wheels with 55 series tires , 17” rims on 45 series tires were ok too, I tried both

H&R Sport springs front and rear.
Koni Sport Struts – (“wife setup” is 180 degrees from full soft)
Bilstien B6 Shocks
IPD 25mm sway bars front and rear
TME strut brace.
All other suspension components are stock and in good condition. Even with the Konis at full stiff on the front, the ride is still good.

That's my basic set up for a FWD GEN 1 although why use differert struts and shocks? (I use Konis all around set at about click #3) and I use the Volvo factory strut brace
I run 215/45/17 DWS which offsets the harder ride, pressures set at about 35 lbs.
It's a very good set up
