Depends on the year, the later ones (including the S/V90) share the same front suspension as an 850 but the rear is a nightmare as it has a transverse leaf spring. If you have an early one then it's just springs and shocks which are readily available.

Nick choy- where did you get the bumper on that wagon stateside?
Made it myself.

For those who didn't find the link to the feature article, here it is: http://www.turbobricks.com/feature.p...tent=summer_05

The build thread is actually broken up in various threads. You kinda have to search for them.

I have a '95 964. I can't find any sort of parts to work. Also, I'm really new to this. :P

Looks like a late nineties-ish V70R bumper cover and (similar year) Cross Country grille to me.
