      Awd vs fwd v70 p2 suspension

      How different is the suspension between an awd v70 and a fwd v70

      I have the opportunity to pick up a set of BC coilovers cheap. But they are for an awd and my car is fwd (2007)

      Is the only difference the spring rate ? Or is the physical shock body different also? Ideally if the shock body is the same I would like to buy them and then pick up the fwd springs to make it work.

      Is this an option or is it more than just the spring rates that are different between awd and fwd applications?

      Extremely. You’d need to swap the whole rear subframe.
