What made you choose this particular product?
High quality mono-tube shocks with adjustability that makes it perfectly drivable on bumpy roads as well as track.
Is this your first time buying from this brand? Did you consider other brands?
No, I have used Bilstein products before on both street and race cars. I looked at several other brands but quality and potential longevity of these coil-overs is what sold me on them.
Was it easy to install? Any installation tips that will help others?
Yes, straight forward install, just followed the Bilstein instruction in combination with the Volvo installation guide for suspension.
Once you've had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?
Yes, worked as all bilstein products have in the past.
