Koni Special Active

Application Notes:Does not fit models with self-leveling suspension.
Koni Special Active Shocks 8745 1016

I'm getting ready to do major front end work on my 98 V70XC, spring seats, struts, bump stop, etc. I'm trying to find the best struts I can that are better than OE/Sachs. The Koni Special Active, formerly FSD is what I'm looking into, from my understanding the front end on all of our (p80) models is the same, so the above quote from Koni's website should not deter me, correct?

Is this being sold as a set? If so, and it includes the rears this may be why it has this statement. I don't have access to my Vida just now to look at front end part numbers to confirm if regular AWD and V70XC front shocks are the same. Mind you, most of the AWD come with the rear self-leveling shocks, so maybe the web-site is set up to automatically exclude your model.

I know the FWD and AWD models use the same front shocks, but don't know about the V70XC.

I am currently trying to fix my Vida laptop and if successful will try to look this up.
