    the 245 i'm picking up will promptly have all springs removed to see where that gets me. i'm perfectly fine with a shitty ride to get the stance i want. done it before, will do it again. if that doesn't get it as low as i want, i'll replace the struts with shorter models and possibly break out the grinder and welder. i plan on documenting every step to see what it takes to go as low as possible.

    btw, planning on running sc430 18" wheels on it

    I don't know much about the older brick suspension, but Ben at Kaphlenke has some wicked set ups. I am going to be getting my rear coils from him. (http://www.kaplhenke.com/)

    With the 70/850 series you can easily make coilovers (like I did) from Koni shocks and Afco parts.

    I love the styling that seems to be the norm in volvos, semi race that still looks streetable.

    Im very happy this thread exists

    I so want a Volvo as a new daily!
    as we are talking about swedish cars, what about some stanced Saabs?
    I can't find any pics and i try hard though!
    i am quite sure a 9-5 could be awesome (planing on buying a new daily, so s70 VS 9-5 is hard)

    Mattphi, more i see yours, more i want an S70!
    i guess it will be the next, definitely! i took a look on Volvospeed and CFLeuro, saw a lot of awesome bricks, but i have to say, yours is the coolest!
    my girl miss my 945 and she wants me to buy another Swedish car so, every one will be happy, and they are crazy cheap here in France but impossible to find a T5, 2,5L 20v will be enough after the TDI i guess!
    Passat sold on early january, next story fast after i hope!

    Hey man, thank you so much. It's pretty hard to build a descent Volvo in the US. There is a very small amount of aftermarket parts available, and those parts are expensive, which is why not many people want to mod them.
