Took a while to find the exact shocks for the Volvo due to my year being a flatform conversion year. Turns out it was assembled by Dr. Evil's family in Belgium in the old DAF plant and I'm driving a french car. The Bilsteins are near to stock, not beating me up, but able to cope with high speed and also a bumpy local road. Would buy again, but I don't have to -- lifetime warranty by FCP. Just watch the clock-position of the spring BEFORE disassembly -- take multiple phone pics and spot paint mark the springs -- both front and rear struts arent well marked and rotation seems to make a difference.

If your car's handling has degraded, or you are noticing it bounces more over bumps, or you have noticed a leak on the shock, you may need to replace your shocks. Be sure to check all the components of the suspension for excessive play and replace as necessary so you only have to do the job once.
