240 Suspension Options - Comfortable ride
The time has come to redo the suspension on the 240 wagon.
I'd like to keep the couch on wheels ride comfort of the car.
I'm not interested in a sports suspension set up. I live in Sydney and the roads a pretty garbage - so I don't want to go crazy spring rates either. I also don't want to cut springs.
I picked up a very cheap new pair of King Springs (lowered height) for the front so I'll most likely pair them with the same set in the rear and hope they aren't too stiff.
I'm looking for input / experience on dampener options with these springs.
So far the options are:
- Sachs Super Touring ($460 ish)
- Bilstein B4 ($562 ish)
- Bilstein HD ($450 ish)
Anyone have any experience with above?
I feel the Bilsteins would be a little too stiff - but probably control the shock a little better.
I've gone with Volvo OEM strut tops & Lemfolder ball joints as these are pretty cactus (and the knocking in the front end is driving me insane.
Do you guys have any feedback on the above or suggestions to keep a nice plush comfortable ride (and hopefully knock an inch or two off ride height?)
