Google is your friend, searching Volvo 240 on ipd springs will help you. And all you listed are the basic good mods. A cam and exhaust are good, if you lower with stiffer springs, best to upgrade your shocks too. Or you can get coilovers from BNE, still need strut/shock upgrades either way. There's also the full coilovers route with BCRacing coilovers.

I went from my stock struts, shocks, and springs to the IPD lowering springs with Koni struts and shocks and it made a huge difference. Granted my setup was pretty blown out, the ride quality for me is much better, it looks cooler lowered, and it corners much better.

I used the IPD lowering springs on my V8 wagon they built me a custom 1" rear bar {dual exhaust} and I run Koni's at all corners, once I dialed in the shocks it has been a dream to drive.
