Found a sweet collapsible cargo net at the pick n pull



Gave her a bath



It's super grey here and the jewel tail lights really pop against the silver

Found XC90 rear calipers, pads and rotors in excellent condition from the local picnsave so all set for the 316mm upgrade!
Also got the brackets for the front upgrade to 305mm.

I spotted today giant brakes on XC 90 that I was thinking on transplanting on my XC 70. I’m assuming one needs to run 17” rims, minimum, for those to fit. My assumptions correct?

Looking tall! What size tires?

Those rear spring spacers should be fine with stock spring. I'd be concerned with overextending the shock if you were using lift springs. Hopefully there isn't an issue if you bottom out the rear end.

Stock winter tires for now.

The spacers I dont like them, the one in the picture slipped off and I had to redo it. And something is still uneven I'm afraid they wont hold any weight.. I might just make a taller 1" homemade body spacer with longer bolts. doesnt actually need to be 1". I'd be happy with 0.9 if I can get it in there just to make it level with the front.

On a positive note the sachs struts feel great..

Lol we do this all the time in New England, too. I think the current record is 4 or 5 SS members at the same JY simultaneously.

Thanks for the update. And I very much agree that I'd feel safer with body spacers versus a spring spacer, still working on my 0.75" spacers.

By now with all the work you've done it probably would have been worthwhile to purchase the bad Swede lift springs.

If they were the 336mm brakes then they require 17s
