I finally got my front end kit from FCP, tore everything apart, and can now see that the AWD uses the newer style control arm which bolts right to the subframe.

Damnitall, I really wanted to avoid getting an alignment twice.

Getting back to the rear suspension discussion regarding replacing nivomats + springs with standard shocks + different springs, was there a verdict reached about the appropriate replacement springs?

My car has an 'MM' designation on the production ID plate in position 22 + 23, meaning that it has iPd part number 113905 rear nivomats. They are shot, and I'm not really into paying the $500 plus tax for new ones. The question then is, should I use the iPd #113906 or #113907 rear shocks? And if I replace the rear springs with iPd #115257 ones, will the back end sit lower than the front?

I'm also still looking for an answer about regular shocks and springs to put in my awd, has anyone tried this and if so what parts did you use? I've replaced the nivomats on my car once and the rear end is sagging again, I plan to tow a small trailer with a my trials bikes this summer and would like a stiffer spring setup. Anyone??

question?, when I recently had my front sway bars replaced due to one being very loose, upon closer inspection from mechanic he seen my rotors on all wheels were rusted, he asked me if I got this rude shuddering effect when applying brakes usually going steep grade and apparently so it was a uncomfortable feeling, was told I had to scrape all 4 rotors and replace them along new brake pads, Mmmm costly how much should I spend on a complete brake job at local garage?

The 850 AWD was also available in Australia, all manual gearboxes, all turbocharged.

They were $82,950 here in Australia, which is where I think the initial price confusion at the start of the thread came from.

Does anyone know what trailer hitch will fit this model.
Curt modle 12211 is listed as well as models by drawtite and hidden hitch for non awd models.
Has anyone installed a hitch?
Thanks fo any help.

Just curious. Mine came with the factory dog cage and a quick release hitch including two ball hitches and all the wiring. Did all of them come with this?

Would lile to sell. In Canada. Only

"I found a Euro Spec 850 AWD with a leather/cloth interior, very rare."


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I saw these cool seats and really wish I could find some. I just ran into a 1994 Volvo 850 Turbo on copart with these very seats though! I would buy the car for the seats, however, this car needs a broker to bid.

Default need help with a couple of things

One of my nivomats leaked and I am thinking of replacing. I found a place in Ontario that wants 450 a piece.
I think i want to stick with the nivomats as to switch to a spring and shock seems a bit overwhelming for me. Is it easy?
Should i bite the bullet and replace both? So expensive
Also the muffler on the drivers side has a nice hole in it. Where can i source a muffler for this. Is it the same as a 98 v70 xc by any chance?
Thanks guys.
