    Default Suspension upgrade for Volvo S40 T

    I know this aint french related...but, my friend has just purchased a Volvo S40 T. He was buying a 306 XSi, but for some strange reason he went with the Volvo! But, with all you knowledgeable people out there I figured some of you may know what a good upgrade would be. He would like to17" rims on the car but he realises the Susp. will need some work. Should he lower, change spring/dampers and what type? Also where-sydney based- would be a good start. He also drove a T4 but found too much power to handle and wheelspin everywhere. BTW, he's going from a 1.4 barina to the S40...quite a contrast. Any thoughts appreciated. Oh, and good jokes to tease him with!!!!

    I'd say ask at vvspy.com or forums.swedespeed.com

    T4s are very quick, and surprisingly fuel efficient machines.

    17s on a s40.....ughhh......the suspension on those things isn t crash hot anyway.......especially rear end......i suspect he ll end up hating it....unless he can revise it somehow......volvo had issues sorting it in the later models....so how a privateer goes is anybodys guess......




    cheers

    I'm assuming you're talking about the previous S40...the current one doesn't need much suspension help.
