    Yeah, I have to look to the tires again.
    Alignment is 0.06 degrees on each side, with a total of 0.11 and a 0.00 steer ahead. The camber is -0.3 (left) and -0.6 (right) - yet the outside edges of...

    My bad, I meant actual blue-box Volvo branded parts. I was afraid of compromising on the LCAs for this specific reason.

    I used OEM Volvo LCAs with the bushings already in them. The weird part is that it's not all the time and it's never a drift leftward when I decelerate. It's ONLY a slight pull right when I...

    Not so. When the ignition is in position II, a lot of things are on, so unless you're really quick with the battery cable it will spark.
  6. Alignment issue? Nervous steering/tracking grooves.

    Last alignment as of a month or two ago is within spec.

    I used an H8 AGM from AC Delco. It was... $173 I think. Well worth having the extra cranking amps.

    It fits in the factory spot as the Diesel versions came with it. If you can't find it, ask...

    I used some ****TY ProParts QuickStruts a few years ago and they were ****. I would dare to try the Sachs quickstruts if I had to do it again today.

    This right hurr.

    I've always changed over my cars (always high mileage too) to synthetic. A3/B4 for the P2s, full synthetic.

    You need the CANBus LEDs to avoid the glowing. Also avoid the cheap LEDs. Sylvania/Osram are good. I think they call their line "LEDriving" or something like that.
