suspension upgrade

Post by miguisr20 » 04 Nov 2019 07:38 pm

Hello, I have a volvo 360 glt with blocks and springs -25mm of classicswede, I recently got into the circuit with it and noticed that it was too soft in the back, what could I do to harden it a bit? The car has new shock absorbers on the 4 wheels mounted by the previous owner

What shocks do you have? Could be the previous owner had fitted oil filled ones instead of gas?

Possible that they're acceptable for road use but not for track? Best bet is to try some Classic Swede (Gaz) adjustable shock absorbers.
