No, I was referring to those that think the 240/740/940 were the end of the Volvo line. I guess that I count yours as a modern Volvo compared to those relics.

I would be willing to bet that the compression is within 95% of OEM even after that mileage. Very little wear ever on the piston rings and walls if you do proper oil changes, which I'm sure that you have.

regarding the delta links, they slide into the transverse arms but have a plastic sleeve that makes them tough to pull back out even when you have the bolts removed. You have three options - 1) buy the puller (IPD sells one for about $225) 2) use a drill to poke holes in the plastic sleeve to allow you to pull it out with a make-shift puller 3) heat with a torch enough to melt the plastic. I'd also recommend for northern cars to inspect the bolt that goes into the chassis as they can rust and you may need to weld solid again.

I was going to make a Home made puller if I canít find one. From what it looks like in the photos is a hollow peg it comes out of the chassis and then bushing slides over it in the bolt goes up through it? How would i know itíd rusted out up inside

Its really a very simple design. From what I recall, there are only two bolts - one to the chassis and the second which goes through the transverse arm. the transverse arm is just a hollow slot for the bushing to slide into and there's a plastic sleeve that goes between the bushing and the arm to ensure a tight fit. So first you need to remove those two bolts, let the arm hang down then the work begins for separating the two. I don't think the issue is whether its rusted up inside (since there's plastic between the arm and the bushing) - its just a compression fit that requires a puller to separate. That's why you can try drilling holes in the plastic to make room or using heat to melt the plastic to loosen the fit.
