rear suspension on P3 Volvos V70-XC70 2012

I had air shocks on an old truck, and they worked great.

A weight distribution hitch is a great idea - it uses leaf springs to raise the rear of the car and the front of the trailer = improves steering as well.

Put your stuff in the trailer instead of the trunk - use it to adjust the hitch weight - an ordinary bathroom scale can weigh the tongue for 165 pounds.

My '96 855R wagon had Nivomat shocks that self leveled the car. When I picked up a B16 and a transmission for my 544, the rear dropped 2 inches - within 1/4 mile, the shocks had pumped up to level the car and my buddy was quite impressed!
