    Volvo 850r rear suspension

    Quick question - are the rear nivomats the same on a V70R AWD 1997 as they are on a 1996 850R or does the fact that the former is an AWD introduce a variation that prevents a straightforward transfer of nivomats?

    The nivomats on the AWD have a horizontal bar in the lower mount of the shock which is different to the FWD rear shock which will have a bolt hole. I don't know if one can be modified to fit the other (they may have different lengths):
