      Sheet. It was apparently forgotten to mention that the 99+ rear caliper is a better design and a bolt on. Not the 00 R specific vented either, just any 99+ rear awd calipers.

      What is an upgrade about it? Same rotor and pad as 98? Even if I knew 00 was vented I would have sprung for it. Dangit

      What winter tire sizes can I run on the wagon?

      I ordered 205/60-16 VikingContacts to run this winter but I got an email from tire rack saying they might rub. I asked if he know where theyíll rub, at full lock or on the strut, but I want to see what all of your guysí experience is

      Theyíre fine. 205/55r16 is stock, 60 fits (Iíve run that size). Your closest ďpinchĒíis actually on the rear with the leading inside edge of the tire and the forward stay arm and e brake cable.

      If you havenít ordered them yet potentially do some shopping around other brands and models that crapinental is awful expensive for what itís lacking in terms of tech. Plus, Iíve never seen a Viking long ship with snow tires on it just sayin

      I had already ordered them, and I wanted something asap because the tires on it now are juuuuunk! Mismatched and differently worn. I got a good deal on the Vikings so Iím ok with it. Hakkas are just so damn expensive! Good thing I have awd to slow me down faster too

      Itís coming together! Itís getting a loooot less hooptie with the new braking system, and a fluid flush!



      This whole awd concept better be good, because the rear subframe looks like a PITA. I wish I could take it all apart and bring it to campus to sandblast and repaint. But thatíll be for a later project.

      On another note, what hardware should I get in preparation of replacing f the nivoís? Any recommendations?

      Adjustable spring perches. 450 lb eibach or other standard motorsport springs. Shocks of your choice be it oem volvo awd base or bilstein or whatever.

      AWD doesn't help you stop Also Hakka aren't that expensive in 16; maybe $130-140 for R3. My experience with Continental products has been overwhelmingly negative; I've driven on a number of their offerings ranging from winters to UHP AS and they were all terrible. Almost crashed twice because they had so much less grip than I was expecting, and I didn't even think I was pushing it either of those times.

      Tires are cheap compared to crashing.

      I know tires are cheaper than crashing (actually my family has only made a profit from insurance payouts lol), but the local testimonies of guys who have tried a lot more tires than I have have been overwhelmingly positive, especially for the money.

      I tried vikingcontacts out on a p2 XC and they didnít break loose at any driving condition I experienced, even with a shark stage 1 tune, so Iím actually pretty excited to see how they fair on my R. Any winter tire is going to be better than my other AS options on my current rims.

      Iím excited! The lake isnít frozen so thereís no drifting to be done, but Iíll be able to test the awd in the snow lol

      Where in MN are you located about? MNVolvo usually has some snow meets to do donuts and take pics whenever thereís a big storm, you should join us if we do!
