    Personally I just used a rivet gun my dad let me borrow. I’m not sure how I’d feel about the plastic ones given I don’t have the plastic skid plate/air guide under my car.

    Is this a job that needs to be done again down the road? If so, is it more desirable to hit the smaller end of the range (0.016)? I think I’m doing this on a friends 07 s40 soon. Oddly, my 05 XC70’s...

    Yup! Buy a set of ten and put them in your glove box. When your next set of ten comes because you forgot that you put them in there you then sprinkle a pair here and there so you’ll never be without.

    Seeing as it’s a pain in the ass job, I’d say go with the genuine stuff. You don’t want to have to do it again in only a year or two.

    I’ll be doing mine in the spring when I overhaul my suspension.
