Ok Let me update.
I have the whole system out and will post a play by play on this process when done.
I did find a Part Number: 9140471. Which I was led to believe was the stiffer of the transverse springs. With non nivomate in a wagon. The one in the car, I have reads the same and was stamped code 1, but this one is stamped code 3. not sure what that will do. ( but I am looking at some chevy 1500 coil overs that should slip right into the shock brackets for added load capacity)
Im am currently, in the process of cleaning ever thing and hunting down the repayment rubber spring perch seats, which the spring sits in at the ends of the lower control arms. Also looking for the Rubberized Anchors for the spring which hold it to the lower aluminum cast carriage. ( the original rubber parts are crumbling.)
I hope this project should come back together nicely, and also will allow me to take it all out again if needed for futer repairs of any unexpected type. .
I am Surprised at how un-accessible the rear end is unless you take all this assembly . Anyway it is out, so Im at half way, But even the oil service plug and the transmissions “w” ele lock up ele plug connect is hidden with-in this multi link assembly a-top the rear of the pumpkin out of reach. “Engineers are a sick breed.”

Ok well if any one knows if I landed the correct spring part number 9140471 let me now what you think . before I put it in , in the next week or so... But It seems that everyone who knew anything about a 1996 - 1997 Volvo 960 multilink rear suspension, is dead. To old to talk, or has been abducted by aliens.
