    240 "coolover" suspension install

    Finally! Better things for the 240! I wasn't looking for a ride height change, just better dampers, stiffer spring rates, more camber and general street cred increase. -Springs: 280#F 2.5"x8" with 4" long tender springs (100#) 175#R 5"x10.5" -Dampers: Koni Sports -Modified the strut tubes...

    Driveshaft Balancing

    A bit of a conundrum here. I swapped out the front half of my driveshaft with a 740 M47 shaft. Both halves still have all appropriate balance weights on them, I can only assume nothing is wrong with them. The question is, did volvo balance them as an assembly or separate? I took them to a shop...
