V70R

Post by BayV70 on Sun Jun 20, 2010 1:31 am

I bought my Volvo Oct 09 and obviously love it, starting first progression threat cuz i got a lot of upgrading i want to do to her.

Just got a used XC grill, painting a matte finnish - i don't like the shiny chrome.





I got these exhaust tips coming in the mail Smile cant wait!


I have a pair of Magnaflows

I had them put in, I have done some on my nova and it just takes alot of time and you can rent a spring press from a auto parts place. It's a great upgrade to do and you can adjust the ride to whatever your driving conditions are, lifetime waranty too so you won't have to replace them.

I didn't when I cut the springs on my 740, but it's probably a good idea anyway. You should be able to get the top of the strut out without disconnecting the bottom, which IIRC negates the need for an alignment. However, you should also do the bushings, especially the strut rod bushings if you haven't yet. Poly's dirt cheap, so you might as well pop for those over rubber.

Matte looks good, and I assume you just buffed out the black areas cause they look really good too.

Koo, thanks for the insight. I'll be sure to take pics cause I hope to get it done this summer.
