Back when my New-To-Me V70R got hit I needed something to drive in the meantime. I wanted something that could be a potential donor chassis for everything from the V70R. After looking around for a bit a found a 99 V70XC and was really smitten with the red. I typically don’t like red, but I do on this car for some reason.
Driving home after a standardly awkward Craigslist car purchase.
The first steps were to do some maintenance and clean up the car. I can’t believe how dirty it was. The doors would NOT come clean. Until I found the the magic goods!
After driving it for a while, I had trouble with the saggy butt and an easier fix (for me) was to bring the front down to match. Also, some of it was preparation for either fixing the VR or making this into a XCR. So....I found sleeves that would fit the P80 strut tubes. Found out that a 2.5” coilover spring just about seats in the inner pocket on iPd HD spring seats.
That got me to here
