Free Parts, Thanks to Swedish Motors

First, a big thanks to Swedish Motors in Boulder, Colorado for the Free Parts, especially Sophie who contacted me to pick up these parts for MVS members. They’ve got a good Yelp rating (4.5).

These parts are free to you. Claim them in the thread linked below, or contact me. Tuesday night I’ll open it up beyond MVS Contributors.

  • Please don’t pick with the intention of selling it. These parts are to help you or another Volvo owner with her/his car, to get it running or to keep it running.
  • No hoarding. Again, these parts are to help you or another Volvo owner with her/his car, to get it running or to keep it running.
  • Please no more than two parts per member.
  • You pay shipping at USPS. This can be as low as $8.
  • Please understand these parts are not known to work. They are not “known working” parts. You’re taking a chance. However, they came from Swedish Motor’s parts shelf, so at that time, they were known working.
  • US states and Canada.

So I changed out my struts and shocks and purchased some colorful Bilstein HD parts for my 1998 S70 Base. Next time I visited my mechanic he asked me about my new suspension and why I chose those parts. Naively, I said, “They’re heavy duty and their for performance.” to which he responded, “Where are you racing around with this car?” He explained that I chose something ill suited for my car (not much giddy-up) and will give me a ride like a pick-up truck.
Two years later…I agree he was right. I live in LA, lots of stop-n-go and tons of pot holes. He recommended to me Sachs or genuine Volvo in the future.

Hope that helps you choose
