Procedure for replacing shocks and springs, any and ticks tips? 120-130

Hi greendread,

Some resources for you. With the front suspension subframe, double wishbone suspension of the 110-120-130, and p1800 (and by proxy the 140-160), you have some options to control the compressed spring under the raise Volvo Amazon as part of spring and strut replacement.

Some Volvo OEM green manual action for you. Like you're at the Volvo dealership garage in 1971.

From http://volvo1800pictures.com/sweden/Volvo_1800_dokumentation_main_page_en.php

Here are the PDF manuals you want to reference. (direct links to the PDF files):


7 Springs, shock absorbers, wheels 120 1800 PDF 10.06MB

http://volvo1800pictures.com/document/Service_manual_jack/part_7_springs_wheels/part_7_springs_wheels.pdf


And for your reference:
6 Front end & steering gear 120 1800 PDF 14.94MB

http://volvo1800pictures.com/document/Service_manual_jack/part_6_front_end_steering/part_6_front_end_steering.pdf

Copy and past the URL in your Mozilla FireFox (yay!), Internet Explorer Edge thingy (Win 8.x and 10 SUCK!), or evil Google Chrome or other Chromium browser. Save the PDF file to your computer using the controls in the browser.





The PDF files are in the HTML of the page:
http://volvo1800pictures.com/sweden/Volvo_1800_dokumentation_main_page_en.php

Yet the hyper refs are malformed, so you don't see the links on the page:

Lok at the HTML, and find the refs to the PDF files.

Yet we have some other info of a more DYI approach.

Other folks with 110, 120, 130 and Amazons can provide better insight.

Hope that helps yooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
