Got the clunk in the front end fixed, drove it a couple times, took it to the car wash, got it sideways with my daughter in the back seat, wiped everything down and then threw the cover on it last night.

What did the front end clunk end up being?

An issue with the BNE strut mount bushings.

Dustin, how you like the "middle hole" in the QSRA's? I've only put about 25 highway miles on mine since reconstruction (going to get the paint quote today) but so far I'm liking the quicker steering...... less "Grandpa".

Yep, guess I owe you an apology and a few bucks for the *extra* bushings. Turns out they were in there, but for whatever reason the passenger side wasn't seating in the mount fully. That bushing was a little bunged up, so I'm glad I had the new ones. I made a little press with a socket, bolt and washers and got that bushing in all the way before buttoning things up. No more rattling. Sorry BNE. Message me a PP addy if you want.

I still haven't gotten much time driving the car in a "spirited" manner. I definitely think beyond the m90 swap and maybe a couple small things, this car's pretty much done. With me getting older and tired-er, the suspension is more than up to the task for how I drive anymore.

This thing really does handle ridiculously well for being a 25 year old Volvo wagon (IIRC build date of 11/93). Probably one of the most underrated aspects of 7/9s is how well they handle. While they wouldn't be blown away by the power it's making, I'm pretty sure someone unfamiliar with these cars would be pretty surprised by the handling within a couple corners. I actually have a couple folks that were ticked I didn't get them out for a ride this year, I'll have to remedy that next spring if I still have it...
