That's actually what I just recently installed. It's the lowest I can go while still being able to use my driveway. Haven't really had the chance to test it yet.

Haven't been here in a while. How are you all doing?

Got rid of the C70, sad but I needed to move onto something different.

I've got a 12 S60T5, an 89 245 and the 65 Amazon now. No more ticket bait with the C70M gone.

For my 98 s70...

Trying to figure out suspension for a more comfortable DD. I have had multiple suspension setups on the car. This is my added components in order of precedence:

Billy TCs on stock springs = better

IPD sways front and rear = funner

Shock and strut braces = tighter

18" peg reps and spacers = cleaner but rougher due to the minimal sidewall

D2s = lower and sportier

Currently rehabbing the shyte out of the car and want to redo the suspension again to have a solid, comfortable, fun DD that I wont need to raise and mess with perches. I could never get the D2s in the rear just right for highway driving although they were amazeballs on twisties. Bought IPD blues and Koni Oranges with all new hardwear, bushings and control arms. I'm thinking of returning the Oranges now though after spending a few hours reading through the forums and will pick up Monroes instead. Sound good? Now for tires how do you guys feel about 225/50's? I have spacers and a fender roller so they should fit just fine just wanting some input from you hard cocked Volvo slayers based on your experiences...

The entire last page was talking about spring and suspension setups so I figured it would be a safe bet to ask. So here's a pic of the car I'm asking about. Currently sitting on D2s  but definitely not slammed as low as they go, and dirty as hell because I haven't driven it since around last Halloween. Anyway, Blues with Monroes seem popular based on the last page so that's what I'm going with. Already called IPD to return the Koni Oranges. Anyone here ran 225/50's yet with rolled fenders?

Too tall, you'll rub like crazy. Rolling fenders has nothing to do with the diameter of the wheel well. Try 225/40 with 18s or 225/45 with 17s

I had 215/40 Ventus. Not impressed. I'll try the 225/40 in P Zeroes. The road noise on the last set was awful although. Like everything else in life, you get what you pay for

 

Thanks man

Heres my other one
