Considering Air Shocks: 850 Turbo

Thinking about Air Shocks?

If you can find the air shocks and decide to install them I like to know how it rides. I thought about how to raise the front and back of my 98 S70 T5 because I see a lot of Volvos in my area on Craigslist for sale that have their front ends damaged completely and the bumpers are still intact, so I thought about raising the car also.

Considering air shocks for my 850 Turbo

Bonus! More on the Volvo 850 Turbo

Don’t underestimate the Volvo 850, the car that, in its characteristic Swedish reserved way, reinvented the automaker when it popped into American showrooms for 1993. The boxy 850 didn’t look like much of a departure, but Volvo’s investment in its new car was the most any Swedish brand had ever spent on itself.

Look beyond the boxy but elegant lines, with its softer corners than the harsh angles on the 900- and 700-series cars with which the 850 was to share showroom space. Forget the tractorlike, ultra-durable 240. For Volvo, the 850 would become its showpiece. It was a highly advanced car that allowed the automaker to flex its sophistication, its safety and especially its performance. Now, nearly 30 years after the 850 was unveiled in the summer of 1991 at a media event, the car that set the stage for the brand’s renaissance has the makings of a future classic.
