We all know how rough the ride can be in a P80 Volvo, that's why FCP EURO put together this comprehensive suspension kit with Koni FSD shocks to not only refresh your suspension, but to improve your ride quality! The Koni FSD Spring/Shock Kits includes a matched set of Eibach Pro Kit Springs to complement the FSD technology and give your vehicle a lower and more aggressive ride.
FSD is the abbreviation of Frequency Selective Damping. It is the latest technology of Koni, specifically designed to combine the ultimate in comfort and road-holding. This no-compromise shock absorber was launched to the world in 2005. A revolutionary new technique which combines the benefits of firm and comfortable suspension in a single perfect shock absorber. Firm for sporty driving on even road surfaces. Comfortable for a smooth ride on uneven road surfaces.
If you are able to change the damping force level in relation to the frequency of the movement of the vehicle, you create the possibility to solve the conflict in terms of comfort and handling ever present in conventional dampers.
The Koni FSD technology does just that! In effect giving you Active Ride Control. The groundbreaking FSD technology has been designed and patented by Koni to end the compromise between comfort and road-holding. This new feature can be used as an integrated part of the hydraulic valving system inside the damper.
Consequently, no additional cables, sensors, or any other electronic devices are needed to operate this system. It operates fully hydraulic and frequency selective and is therefore an economical and effective solution to improving a cars handling. It will give Ride and Handling Engineers a constructive, additional variable in fine-tuning the cars behavior.

My 850R was in dire need of some love bought this kit and it made the car come back to life. This kit paired with a new set of tires and an alignment has the R driving like Ive never felt it before. Kudos to FCP for putting together this awesome, comprehensive kit.
Bought this for my 2000 V70 Base. Had no trouble whatsoever with the fitment or condition of the items in the kit. Have heard of issues working with the control arms but by using a bottle jack to support under your rotors control arm replacement was easy. Make sure you have solid spring compressors. Tightened up the front end and brought the ride comfort back to like new. Easy job for a do-it-yourselfer.
Great kit! Installed in my son's S70 in less than 5 hours. It now handles like a completely different car. Can't wait 'til spring so I can do replace the suspension on my V70.
Purchased the full suspension kit to refresh the handling on my 95 850. I am very pleased with the kit. Huge improvement in ride quality.
The Strut Mount Washers were rusted even thought they were still in the package. I ended up reusing the current one because they had not rusted / won't rust because of the type of metal used. I guess you get what you pay for and I went with the cheaper kit. I also feel the kit should come with the strut top nut remover tool. You WILL need it as there is no other way to get the top nut off. SKU #:CTA-A446. I feel the struts are a little stiffer then I would like but they ride ok. I think if I had to do it again I would go with the touring class.
Starting with the downside: kit does not include the inner tie rods. If you're changing the outer, might as well change they inner as they are probably bad as well. Appearently, the inner tie rods come in two different sizes, 14mm and 16mm -- based on the steering rack. If you are like me and you have the 16mm version, you can't just go to autozone/NAPA/Advanced to pick up the part since they don't stock them. And if you go blindly they might give you the 14mm (lke they did me). So if you order this set, which is great, don't forget to find add the inner tie rods. Overall a great set, good price. Easy to follow videos. Also worth mentioning this job will require a really good mechanics set. Some missing pieces I didn't have include 18mm wrentch and ratchet pieces (got away with 3/4 sometimes), 21 mm. (Suggestion to FCP, why not put a link to the tie rods on this page?)
Still waiting to install this on my 98 S70 base model. My mechanic says if your doing the suspension, do it all. He couldn't believe the price for the parts included. I ordered springs all around from FCP as well at an excellent price too. For a 100,000 mile car it's time - can't wait for the test drive after it's all done.
Recently purchased this kit for a 1998 S70 Base Model. I absolutely cannot believe how this vehicle now drives and performs on the road. After the alignment, this car performs like a new vehicle.....just make sure that before you order you check for two or four bolt design of the control arms as the VIN does not provide us with that information. Awesome product!
For the DIY individual who insists on doing the job only once, this is a price and part selection made in heaven. Be sure to check your control arm mounting style! I left it to chance, and ended up with a set that don't fit. Don't be like me.
I recently Bought this Kit for a car I plan Flipping. Was very Im pressed with how Comprehensive the kit was for the Price. All Parts were of good quality and came with all hardware.However If you plan on doing this Kit I would suggest doing the Inner tie rods as well they are not included but they are one of those things you might as well do since you have it all apart.
Time for a suspension over-haul? This kit has everything except the alignment!
