The wife is literally getting sea sick in my new "project" V70 T5 so I'm after struts/shocks for x70.
If they are half decent condition even that is better than what I've got.
Rebuildable would be fantastic. Otherwise its off online shopping I go.
Koni? Bilstein? KYB?
Can get you a set of Koni yellow adjustable fronts off my old V70t and have a set of IPD springs (same as R height) I used for short time here too. If the T5 has nivomat back.dampers you need different mounts off non nivomat car to put in other shocks.
Maybe some poly bushes on swaybar, HD MOOG droplinks and use XC 90 strut top mount rubber.A strut tower brace is good addition.
Front subframe bushes can be replaced with poly too (C70 convertible has aluminium bushes!) or poly half bushes from IPD push in around rubber ones.
Pump up the tyres to 38-42psi?
Let me know about my bits, bushes can be had from @AshDVS and probably strut brace too.
Thanks Les, dropping you a pm.
No nivomats that I can see thankfully, I'll investigate the rest of that gear as I was about to just grab the fcp meyle hd kits for struts/control arms/droplinks etc...
The MOOG droplinks have grease nipples .and thicker material. They beat the rubbish IPD HD ones hands down.
Xc90 strut tops rubber mounts are better than others HD options and cheaper too....
ROCKAUTO or ebay for Moog and much much more,it's an amazing on line catalogue!!
As said,Ash can help with bushes whether poly or rubber and sells strut braces and supplies the shocks you may want for the rear.
Perfect, thanks for the assistance. The poor old thing won't know what hit her in a few weekends...
I can help if you have not got any all ready, cheap and nasty or middle of the road or good stuff.
Will have them for you on Monday Jono , will get post price too . IFyou still want otherwise i cant pick em up due to cost...
