Awesome, thank you! That fits the bill perfectly. They will probably wait a bit, as one of the reasons that my 244 was such a great deal was the fact that it has new tires on it. But I like to get...

Thanks! Yeah, my original hope was to do find a nice manual 245 and really do it up. With the autotragic 244 which was too good of a deal to pass up, I'm not trying to waste the time/effort/money...

Throttle back, guys. There's a big difference between "chatter", and being snarky to the new kid.

I asked for opinions on whether or not my cheap and easy idea would work. Apparently it will not....

No, sir! Your wagon was a major inspiration! I had actually found a wagon much like yours, but the sedan was cheaper and in far better condition for a daily driver.

Sooooo.... Me lift Volvo... Bad? 😕

No, I'm afraid that I'm not picking up what you are laying down.

Yeah, I'm trying to avoid having to relocate the perch or anything. Welding if any sort is beyond my abilities. Coilovers would certainly be nice, but well beyond my budget.

Right, longer shocks would be a foregone conclusion if we were looking for maximum articulation. The spacers would negate the need for longer springs.

I know that there have been several methods of lifting a 240, from fairly mild to fairly involved. I've spent the last couple of weeks looking over various build threads. I really only want enough...

Thanks, yeah... I just noticed that from reading Jerd's build thread (which I love, by the way).

I have been contemplating the hockey puck method in the front and a set of Cherokee springs in the rear to get about 2" of lift and allow for the smallest size of BFG A/Ts. If I limit my lift to 2"...
