  1. I didn't know Vdash was thing. that's neat.
  2. lol the moment I skipped to he jumps into the other car. NICE
  3. RATS! So my neighbors never seem to pickup their dog poop, and I know it's not a 100% cause for them being around. But in the garage, in what I presumed to be a relatively safe space, RATS. I saw one of these marks years ago thinking, ok something hit the car, after a wash yesterday 5 seperate marks with I would say 2 different bite sizes on the hood. Next 1-2 years I think the whole car might get sprayed again, if not that then the front clip and roof for sure. Looks like a cover is in order for when it's inside.
  4. Fuggin a bro. At first i'm like, did the new welds break??
  5. I believe the big red wire to the accessory connector is on all the time. You could run a new line from the battery and install a fused switch so it only comes on after you've started the car. Back in the day I used a sunroof switch as a momentary switch for an air horn. Same could work for an additional fog light switch in the bank behind the wheel.
  6. Pro tip for a loved xc70. Get some s60 sport seats. What a difference to everyday use!
  7. lesson learned. TO get further engagement from the Ohlins raise the rear springs, don't lower them. Tried 25mm from the sub frame, then 15, bounciest ride of my life. People drove around me on the road. Brought it up to where the 8" springs touch the perches, then down again 10mm and it's great. 32mm or there about from the sub frame, it's got a rake again, and it's a bit tall, however it rides great right now.
  8. Hmm I was more asking, do they make an increase in noise (metal on metal fitment) or are they contributing to any other NVH. But maybe this answers that.
  9. All for the better parts, I enjoy the moog sway bar links as they have a wrench hold and I never trust the torx on a salt drive car. Any experience with noise or harshness from the strut bearings? Consider a set as I need to sent away my Ohlins for a leak.
  10. Just hoping that these ones do the trick! would like to not buy literally a 5th set of springs. At highway speed is was mint. Like I said 25mm right now going to bring it down to 16 next and see how that goes.
  11. First drive - Low speed driving was pretty bouncy sort of like it was previously. The back end just needs to be lowered down a bit so that the shock is not so extended to start with. Highway speed was really great and seemed to do the job the way you'd want. Car still handles so so nicely, the tires are the real star sometimes I think. Vehicle has the rake again which is nice but that may need to go away. Side note, brake refresh went so well, no noises yet and the e brake works better then ever, holds the car on an incline which is nice.
  12. These are Blue Coil. I got them from Ben Kapelhenke, I guess they were special order as they are not listed as a part number they normally sell. So idk why it seems to need such a high amount on the back end. I REALLY should have taken better measurements or sent the Ohlins / Volvo springs to be tested for what spring rate they really were. I'm not sure if they are right or wrong either. I know what with a loaded up rear and bikes / the box on the top with more stuff they were bottoming out over large bumps at highway speed. So to combat this I had to put the adjustment on the shocks all
  13. Didn't hit save on there, should be good now.
