Default ordered springs and sway bars

So I finally turned over cash and bought my first two mods. I got the H&R springs and IPD sway bars. Looking forward to the install and use. I know this my be small to some, but I am excited (and poorer). Wish me luck!

IPD sway bars are the best suspension upgrade you can do to your car other then KW Coilovers.

I had IPD sways on my 1995 850 NA and loved them so much. Also had lowering springs and a strut brace on the car as well. The car handled wonderfully.

I plan to get IPD sways for my s70 that I have now.

Also H&R springs are good.

You will be very happy with this setup.

I would also recommend IPD HD sway bar endlinks and or the QBM sway bar endlinks that QBM, Viva Performance and IPD sell.

Thanks for the suggestion. I will def. look into the end links. I think next on the list will be decent tires. The Goodyear M+S are decent, but don't really handle. Plus I think it's a 60 or 65 series. I figure I will try to find a 50 that will fit in a summer only tire. I have a set of blizzaks for the winter.

I suck. I got the front springs changed. Working on the back and I snaped the pass. side lower shock bolt off. Not good. I have it towed to the local Volvo shop. Hopefully they can just cut the old bolt out and put in a new one. But I was about 2 1/2 hours from home. So now it's there and I'm here. I'm and idiot.

Personally I would get another brand. I suggest you search to see what is available.

If you upgrade to IPD sway bars you really should get an upgraded end link or else you'll be bending them, I know of a few that have. I have the QBM 3rd gen in my 97 854R along with the IPD sways, OMP springs and Koni yellows, I like how it handles. If you get the QBMs make sure you get the rubber boots that cover the joints, other makes have boots too some don't but they're key to lasting longer.

I had to send the sway bars back. My "I can do it attitude" cost way more than having someone else do it would have. But it sounds like that might have been a good thing. When I do have the ability to order the sway bars, I'll make sure I get supporting pieces as well. Thanks all.
