Our Volvo C30 still isnt making proper boost. We have been chasing down issues left and right and while this is very annoying it doesn't mean we still can't enjoy our latest mod: coilover suspension!

This has completely transformed the C30 into something much, MUCH better. And that's what my partner at SL, Chad, talks about in the video. Every car should have coilovers. They are just an amazing performance upgrade for a relatively small cost when you look at overall performance build costs.

Coilovers are amazing and when paired with proper anti-roll bars, it's a world beating combo.

Have you guys done any mods like this to your cars?

  • You know that strut on your Fiesta front end... with the spring and the shock in one piece? THAT'S A COILOVER!!! There is nothing terribly high tech or novel about 'coilovers'. Look at how actual experts do suspension... people like Lotus, for example. You don't even need anti-roll bars (sway bars) in a well designed application. Turning a family car into a vehicle fit for the race track, stops it doing what it was designed to do, to take people and their shopping in comfort. Just get a better car in the first place for pity's sake!

    • I'm glad you have the financial ability to be able to purchase any vehicle you desire. Many of us though can't afford to have specific vehicles for specific types of driving. So people tinker and modify. Nothing wrong with enjoying the car...

    • You don't need to be rich to have a brain (thank goodness). I drive a Trabant 601s because it's all I can afford and it's cheaper than the bus. I'm also an ex-development engineer, so not entirely without a little insight. I constantly am...

  • I agree had a mr4 golf turbo removed the front anti roll bar fitted strut braces front and rear and gaz coilovers fronts adjusted half way on damping and rears 3 of 17 to soft hight two fingers from wheels was perfect for the road much better than standard that’s just one example I could go on

  • Even in racing games i go for better handling before adding more power, Coilovers are amazing, to start with!

  • "cheap", coilovers for my car are 300€ euros for the cheapest off brand coilovers and 800€ euros for the cheapest koni coilovers (which is my entire pay check), and my 1st gen v70 is already so long and low that every time a street is in bad shape or I have to enter a driveway I am afraid of bottoming out the car. Don't get me wrong I would love to put some coilovers on my V70 but right now there are more cons than pros
