With these you can only go so far as well because the spring will hit the inside of the wheel well. Front coilover conversion has smaller diameter springs which allow the most camber adjustment, in combination with the adjustable mounts. Most people with track cars go this route.

The link for the roll correction spacers above, Bneshop.com, also has a couple options for adjustable camber strut mounts as well as several coilover options for any budget. They have kits to modify your existing struts, or complete units. Or full on race stuff.

This is in the UK:

Thank you very much for this course.
Then it is valuable information.
I see that you can really do great things with the suspension of the Volvo 940.
Now I know the way I must follow to leave the suspension system to my liking.
Thank you very much for your interest and for dedicating your time

For caster you need to shim the control arm forward (4-5mm)
:Dios mio::Dios mio:



This is an economic way to get negative camber.


It is very simple.
I never would have thought of it.
Thank you very much for the information

For camber you can slot the holes in teh body or use a adjustable camber plate
Thank you.
At the moment I was going to try only with springs and shock absorbers.
and if the thing went badly, I would change the labels.
Thanks to your information, now I am more convinced and calm that the assembly will go well.
Thank you

Combined with adjustable camber plates you get quite nice adjustability. Already -1 degree of camber in the front makes the car handle much better than stock.
Hello
When I changed the silentblock of the control arms of my 940, I realized that I had a washer more behind the arm to give more advance.
At some point, the previous owner added them.
And I have to say that if it shows in purchase with two other 940 I drove.
What I did not know is that Shandix sold the adjustable control arms.
This is another great news.
Thank you

Perhaps performance might have suffered, but the ride quality is MUCH better than what I had with the IPD "sport springs".

YMMV, but the opinion of a TRUE grandpa
:Dios mio:

Hello, but how old are you?
am already 41 years old, and I do not like the suspension too hard.
So the B & G progressives already have more points.
Actually I was already starting to think only about the B & G and the COBRA.
But in Spain I do not count direct distributor and here they come out.
Thanks for your opinion

Well, in these days back I already got some pieces, and I only miss the springs.
But they have to wait until next month.
The bad thing is that I bought the key of Bilstein MS 08/6 to release the nut of the front shock absorbers and I realized that it does not work, at least in the front B4.
The front B4s bring a nut-shaped closure.
If tomorrow I finish working soon I take pictures of the fish and the key.
The closure of the BILSTEIN B4 shock absorbers does not convince me much.

Again, I want to thank everyone for your interest and help.

There's a seller from the UK which sells some interesting* springs: https://www.classicswede.co.uk/

*40 to 70mm lowering

Haven't tried these myself, but he is also selling the 60/40 red spring kit that I bought from a dealer in Sweden (Swede myself) and that I use. Haven't used the car much since the replacement though. But 60mm in the front is pretty low.

Hi. It is but that they excuse all my delay in writing. In the end I made an order to Classicswede.
I have ordered the melles that reduce 4cm.
As soon as I mount them, I give them my impressions over here.
thank you very much everyone for your help.
regards
