I'll take the back apart and do it again. Double checking that the shocks are extended all the way at that step. It may just be the case that mine were already screwed into the base partially and thus not fully extended.

There is also the "DC" line from classicswede that I've considered getting for my 240, but I don't know much about their quality and how they compare to the BCRacing kit. But the ones from CS do seem catered to the RWD Volvo specs instead of just getting parts and putting them together like BCR does.

For BC, it's a volume game. Quality isn't a consideration.


They have an extra caster edition.


Hey that's my car! I would just like to add that this was caused by the lower bolt on my brake caliper backing out and the caliper lodging into the wheel causing to to lock up. The coilover didn't just break on it's own.

I will agree that their quality isn't the best and I have already swapped out the BC rears because of the bouncy ride.

If I could go back in time I wouldn't have bought them, mostly because the stiff ride doesnt match the rough roads around where I live.
