I guess there's a reason for this thread and the "cutting lowering springs" thread having the same number of views.

What about it? Bolt all that on your car and let us know how it drives.

I think that if somebody had already bolt those pieces to his/her car and will give an information how it drives.

Then i have information about it. Information is always good, remember knowledge is power, horsepower, and driveability. If it handles like a sport car with those pieces i can spend money and buy those. If it handles lika a lowered old 240 then i had to go coilover route!

I understand what you’re asking and why you’re asking it. My point is, the chances of somebody putting together that exact package are slim to none. On top of that would you spent thousands of dollars based on someone’s opinion about how their car drives?

For what you are planning, take a look at Greg Ervin’s “project Volvo” thread. His car handles quite well for a 740 and it took quite a bit of experimenting to get it to do so.

Hi Jussi, I understand what you are saying, but when the first post from the thread starter begins with:

"Time for some testimony.

For the previous 10 years, I've run several lowering spring systems on my 940 sedan. The first rendition was IPD blue "sport springs" matched with Bils HD; this arrangement gave the car a sporty stance for sure, but underwhelmed on handling and suspension manners. The second rendition was B&G Progressive lowering springs matched with KONI Sports. This setup slightly outperformed the original in lateral handling but was worse mannered when encountering road disturbances.

The best, is definitely the last:
"

It seems like a lame question

Ok, so the konis will work!
But your're right, question was stupid.
