      Whoops, didn't mean to link just the Lemforder mount. I ended up grabbing a kit from FCP after doing some research.

      Is it necessary to do the lower torque mount as well?

      Engine Mount Thoughts

      As I'm in the process of replacing the worn out components on my 850, I know the engine mounts are well overdue for a replacement. I've read pretty poor things about most aftermarket replacement...

      New steering joint is in, car drives well for the first time in years! My current tires were dry rotted, so I've opted instead for a new set of Goodyear Assurance ComforTreds in the stock size. They...

      Well, it's been a while. Life got in the way here, but the quarantine has led the 850 to be the main project again.

      I was fortunate to find a mint tan interior from a parts car on Craigslist, so...

      Steering wheel has arrived! Looks like it's in good shape, so that will go in shortly. We picked up a new battery today too, as the old one had kicked the bucket. The plan is to get the old girl...

      Oddly enough, I accidentally signed into the old account I couldn't remember. But here I am, back on the current one!

      As for the long hiatus, that had to do with some personal things, as well as...

      I appreciate that. I'll shoot you a PM, though I am tempted to just do an OEM+ build. Certainly no knock against IPD, but I've always wanted to get this car as close to "factory fresh" as I can.
    9. Wow... the car looks incredible. I hope mine...

      Wow... the car looks incredible. I hope mine looks half as clean somewhere down the road.

      Keep on driving it too! I love that you're not hesitating to take in on 1000+ mile road trips.

      Got it. I was just reading that the OMP bar was steel, that's a big difference.
      No need for adjustable for me, I'm just looking to tighten things up a bit. Even though it's N/A, this is my "sporty"...

      Bump! Had a couple offers that were much appreciated, but just not exactly what I'm looking for.

      Tan seats would be preferred!

      So...RSB and Delrin bushings are in. The mistaken IPD insert is getting returned, no big deal there.

      I would like to get some thoughts on a strut bar. Another member mentioned to me it might be a...

      Orders for the rear sway and delrin bushings have been placed!

      I found an OEM 21.8mm bar online today for about $160 shipped, so there's definitely some cost savings there.

      LOL



      Awesome, thanks! I didn't even know there was a VCOA discount, I'll have to look into that as well.

      Great, now I know it'll be cheap!!! Lol

      I'll give my local dealer a call this week. Hopefully they have the part number in their system somewhere.

      Huh, guess I remembered wrong. It's been awhile since I've looked for first gen V70Rs haha.
      Thanks for the info!

      Correct me if I'm wrong, but we got the V70R in FWD for the 1998-2000 model years. I think you're thinking of the 2004-2007 models that were AWD. Good to know about IPD splitting the parts though.

      Nope, definitely no autocross or anything like that. More than anything I'd just like to make some incremental upgrades since a lot of these parts need to be replaced anyway.
      Would you guys happen...

      Awesome, thanks! Glad to hear the subframe isn't too difficult. I'm going to put in an order for those instead.
      Any thoughts on the sways as well? I looked at the IPD ones, but they were only sold...

      That's my mistake then. I was under the impression the Delrin and IPD ones were the same. That's what you get for ordering at 1am.....
      I'm going to reach out to IPD and see if I can cancel. Can...

      Sorry about that! You're both right, I desperately need to grab some pictures. It's on my list for tomorrow, I'll even break out my good camera for it (as long as it doesn't rain).

      I grabbed the...

      Worst part is I actually spent 3 hours and tracked the guy down. He had hidden the car in his driveway, but had a distinctive sticker on the window. If my dad hadn't had to go to work, we would've...

      No worries, I appreciate it!

      I'll definitely take a look at IPD. It might be a little bit down the road, but can't hurt to watch for sales.
      I'm going to check out the hood bolts for sure. I think...

      Good to know, thanks Jared! (ironically this is my name as well). By any chance, did you get my PM from a few days back?

      Great point on the rear sway. I'm not pushing much into handling since this...

      Ah, both of those would have been great finds. Unfortunately I'm in New York, so it would be tough to pick those up haha. Those 850R seats especially, that one's a killer.

      I'm hoping to find more...

      Thanks! It's a sedan, can't believe I forgot to mention that haha. Black on tan leather with a double brown pinstripe down the side. It was dark when I got home tonight, so no chance for pictures.

    28. Dafuture 111's 850 Rebuild/Mild Mod Thread

      Hi all! I've been a lurker on here for years, so I figure a bit of a backstory is necessary:

      My parents purchased our '95 850 GLT new in October '94, just before I turned 1. The 850 has been my...

      WTB - 850 Seats with good foam

      I'm looking for a set of Volvo 850 front seats, specifically ones where the foam is still good. Mine are worn out beyond fixing.
