    850R full suspension overhaul

    Thinking of spending some coinage on the old girl this summer and doing a total overhaul of the suspension.

    Have priced ever bush, mount and etc for Parts4volvo....

    Already did the front shocks a few years ago, the front top mounts have been recently changed also so apart from those bits and the rear shocks I'm looking to change everything else.

    Parts are just ticking over 600..... for Swedish aftermarket parts..

    I'm sure it will transform the 23 year old ride/handling...

    Better get a quote for the labour before I take the plunge. Got a reasonable local Volvo specialist who I intend to use.

    If your going to replace the wishbone bushes polybushes really are fit and forget, well worth the money.

    I've ordered the heavy duty front wish bones, which come with better bushes and bigger ball joints....

    Hopefully that should future proof it.....
