I was able to get the Wilwood adapters from nordic-car-parts about a year ago, and they were pretty pricey ($350 for a pair). The website (www.volvo-lotte.nl) seems somewhat up to date, but doesn't show the adapters on there that I could find. You might try emailing info@volvo-lotte.nl to see if they're still available.

Crazy - but close enough. The vette is a little shorter at 96.2" and the Canadian is 102" - this matters for side view swing arm and anti-dive/anti-squat calculations for the rear.

That's Boris...sorry - I was speaking "Old Turbobricks" like when we all knew each other.

This build constantly has my wheels turning every time I revisit it. Amazing effort, thank you for the documentation!
Seriously! Man, I've spent months reworking how the entire suspension can get connected to and packaged in this car. Recently when I disassembled the dogbone on the drivers side, I worked out how come this suspension was on ebay. Someone ran out of talent and the dogbone was bent. I could not tell before I had it apart. Then the damn bushings I bought didn't fit...SuperPro's fancy bushings that are supposed to fit all years do not fit the early LCA. It's OK - I'm making my own...this suspension is slowly killing me.

Keen to see this. Iíve run into a few hard to find bushings lately. Was gonna look at 3D printing some moulds/caps/fixtures and pouring some of my own.

From experience printing larger parts in TPU can be challenging, especially with 100% infill, your settings need to be dialed otherwise the nozzle backpressure tends to result in tangled filament in your extruder. Inter layer adhesion is awesome though, just make sure to bake the filament as it likes to absorb and form bubbles.

Printing out a mold in something like PETG and pouring the bushing might be the most cost/time efficient method with certainty of voidless bushings.

I know...I hate to think about it. Then the mirror reminds me.

In a video or two - I'm designing a multi-part bushing.

Molds were printed in ABS - so far so good.
