About Bilstein B16 PSS9 Adjustable Coilover System:

PSS9 series

Utilizing Bilstein's monotube shock absorber design for heat dissipation and ride control, the PSS9 Coil-Over System adds a matched performance spring and threaded ride height adjuster to provide a complete suspension system for a vehicle.

The fully adjustable monotube gas shock absorbers offer nine precise compression and rebound settings, from comfort to competition. The front and rear progressive rate springs allow for the accurate adjustment of a vehicle's ride height, stance, cornering balance and ride quality to maximize performance.

About the Bilstein Shocks Included in this System

All Bilstein gas pressure struts/inserts and gas pressure shock absorbers operate on the same principle. They are manufactured with the rod pointing down into the strut tube, thereby utilizing the thicker, stouter body portion of the shock absorber to dissipate side loads. Consequently, due to the increased diameter and surface of the pressure tube, the Bilstein gas pressure strut/insert or shock is better suited to take increased side loads when compared with the conventional version.

Additional advantages, based on development strongly influenced by the motorsport industry, include greater stability, better road handling, and accurate steering. This combined with extremely high quality manufacturing and materials, means Bilsteins will last approximately four times as long as Original Equipment.

If you are looking for a lower priced system without adjustable dampening, consider our Bilstein B14 kit.

Includes everything required for replacement of the factory springs and struts/shocks. Includes height adjustment tools.

About Elevate Rear Sway Bar:

Tuned specifically to your Volvo P1, the ELEVATE Rear Anti-Sway Bar will keep your vehicle flat in the corners and increase vehicle control. Tire contact patch is maximized when you are at the limits.  Stock factory rear sway bars range from 19mm to 21.5mm in diameter depending on vehicle options.  We have created a strong, 25.4mm (1") diameter bar to greatly increase the cornering ability of your Volvo.  Our testing has shown that a replacement front anti-sway bar is not necessary to achieve the driving characteristics desired, so we focused our efforts on optimizing the design of our Rear Anti-Sway Bar.  You will experience quicker turn in and more neutral handling with your vehicle having the ability to rotate better under heavy cornering.  Installation is very easy and will take the novice about one half hour to remove the stock bar and replace it with the upgraded ELEVATE bar.  The ELEVATE Rear Anti-Sway Bar is manufactured of solid chrome moly with thick, welded end links and finished with a durable powder coated finish for many years of use.   Your factory end links are retained, and high quality greaseable polyurethane bushings with ELEVATE specific metal brackets and grease are included.

Depending on the year and options of your Volvo, there are three styles of rear sway bars installed by the factory.  You will need to determine which is correct for your vehicle before ordering.   When viewing your factory rear sway bar from under the rear of your vehicle, locate the sway bar end link.  Your end link will attach to the sway bar in one of two ways:
Horizontal Tab: The mounting tab on the sway bar is horizontal / parallel to the ground.  The end link is straight and passes straight down through the sway bar.  The retaining nut is facing the ground.
Vertical Tab:  The mounting tab on the sway bar is vertical / perpendicular to the ground. The end link is a 90 degree right angle which passes through the bar.  The left and right side retaining nuts are facing each other.  If your C30 has Vertical Tabs, there are two variants based on the spacing between the sway bar bushings which attach the sway bar to the rear subframe.  Measure the space between the insides of the sway bar bushings to determine if the spacing is 17.5" (44.4cm) or 19" (48.2cm).  When ordering, be sure to select the bar with the correct spacing for your application.

When ordering, please state in the order notes which version (Horizontal, Vertical 17.5", Vertical 19") of Rear Sway Bar you require.
