Sedan or wagon springs?

I'd be interested if they are wagon springs and if 2.2 passes on them

I think I know who it is. He used to be on here before when he had like a 500K km white 745 Turbo. Apparently that 854 has a 20T or something. Theo knows.

It's alright on the springs. I think I'd be going to overload rears and cutting them ideally. Of course on my drive out in the rain, my wipers have done the classic won't turn off behaviour. Looks like I'm actually going to need that trip to pick n pull.

That happened to me when some water leaked under the fake dead pedal sheet metal and got into the wiper relay.

Brilliant spot for that relay.

I already pulled a new relay at pick n pull on my way in to town. That place is heaven compared to the one in Edmonton.

There's a 90 740 turbo ther that would be the perfect donor for +T. Anyone want to help me out pulling that stuff Sunday? I think there's a wasp nest somewhere in/around the passenger fender, though.

I could take the bus up there with my plates from my 84 diesel and put them on and drive it home.

I'd better take my passport also...

I looked at that diesel. Super rare combo, but the rust has gotten to that one. Duct tape everywhere covering holes. $900 for a complete diesel swap donor, though.

Do Virgos fit on a 780? I thought they wouldn't clear the calipers.

Depends on if it has ABS or not (I think?).

She told me it had 240 turbo wheels so I'd assume virgos? On another note; what machine shops in vancouver would you recommend? I need to get my flywheel remachined

Thanks Jason, I went with Alec's! They got it done pretty quickly, and it turned out nice for $70

Anyone interested in a set of steelies from a 98 V70 with or without pretty worn winters for like $50?
top and bottom tires have 5/32nds and middle 2 have 3/32nds and the 3rd one is some unknown brand

$1,000? Bilstein HD front struts and rear shocks, iPd Sport Springs, iPd anti-sway bars.

Could go for Bilstein Tourings too, but I think you may as well go with the HDs.

Or these.

Ha, cool. Looks like you really need rear springs though...

Koni shocks all around, ipd sport springs, and do the dual sway bar mod on the front or iPd bars if you can afford them. Also replace as many suspension bushings you can afford, and get the Volvo OE ones or poly. this is basically what I have and it totally transformed the suspension.

If I were to do it again, I would go for the Koni's over the Bilstein HD's.

There is a Bilstein distributor in Richmond and I found their pricing to be quite good, when I had to get a replacement strut...

I do have a set of stock sway bars that you can have for cheap.
