About Bilstein B14 PSS Adjustable Coilover System:
Utilizing Bilstein's monotube shock absorber design for heat dissipation and ride control, the PSS Coil-Over System adds a matched performance spring and threaded ride height adjuster to provide a complete suspension system.
The Bilstein PSS Coil-Over System allows you to adjust your vehicle's ride height only. Set your vehicle low and tight for optimized performance or revert to a more stock-like ride height and handling characteristics. If you desire adjustable dampening, consider the Bilstein B16 PSS9 adjustable coilovers.
This system features both coil-over and standard monotube gas pressure shocks with performance level valving along with application specific, progressive rate coil springs. Ride height adjustments can be made on the vehicle without removing the suspension. The solid aluminum spring seat and lock nut allow a selective adjustment of the vehicle's ride height. Spring travel and vehicle body height change, but the spring seat remains pre-loaded throughout the allowable range of adjustment.
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.
