What is an ipd Upgraded Part?

If you’ve ever wondered if one of our HD parts might be a good choice for you, here’s a brief insight into how and why we develop them. It’s not real scientific. All we do is listen to our customers and look for trends. If we get lots of inquiries for a part that seems to fail sooner than it should or simply doesn’t provide the performance Volvo owners want, then we take note.

We’ll do some research on what is causing the part to fail and see if we can improve the materials or design. We make some prototypes, test them and then adjust as necessary to get the performance and longevity we want. We then get quotes on having the parts manufactured to our specs. Sometimes the numbers don’t work out as the Volvo market is pretty small, but sometimes they do work out and the ipd HD part becomes a reality! Ipd HD parts have become customer favorites. Some examples are listed belowIpd heavy duty safety anti sway bars, available for most Volvo models 1960-2009! Our number one selling upgrade for over 30 years! Ipd heavy duty anti sway bar end links for 1993-2000 850, C, S & V 70 series, also available for and 2001-2007 S60, S80, V70 and XC90 models. Ipd heavy duty strut mounts for 1993-2000 850, C, S & V 70 series, also available for and 2001-2007 S60, S80, V70 and XC90 models.

ipd Anti-Sway Bars - The Best Upgrade You’ll Ever Make.

If you really enjoy driving your Volvo, but occasionally find yourself wishing it handled a little better, you should seriously consider having an ipd safety anti sway bar system installed.

Volvo owners around the world consistently give ipd swaybar kits excellent reviews for enhanced performance and safety.

(1) Not for “R” models.NOTE: Upgrading the anti-sway bars on these models is a skill level 3 procedure. We generally recommend professional installation as it is necessary to lower the engine sub-frame and a vehicle lift makes the job easier than doing it on jack stands. Although the experienced do it yourselfer can accomplish the install, you should consult the installation instructions before attempting this job to be certain it is within your mechanical abilities.

6K5036 Reviewed by Richard from Atlanta, GAThis is by far the best, easiest, most bang-for-your-buck mod you can do to your car! Handling improvement is immediately noticeable! Instructions are very clear, I did the rear myself (easy) and had a shop do the front (requires full suspension drop). I recommend doing the endlinks too, because the old ones will be rusted and will bend/break and cause more damage if you leave them in.The blue finish is great, urethane bushings awesome. Everybody that sees the little blue paint from the back loves it, and friends with S60s love the handling of mine - less of that SUV-feeling body roll! This is the best upgrade to improve handling of the car without creating excess cabin noise, crashing through bumps or comfort. Highly recommended! (btw I've had it on for 8 months and still love it)

ipd Heavy Duty Anti-Sway Bar Endlinks

ipd’s heavy duty endlinks have been manufactured with long life and consistent performance in mind. With a polished ball socket and 25% larger shaft diameter (stock is 10mm, ours is 12mm) these units have outperformed the factory endlinks hands down. ipd has now extended the warranty for our heavy duty units to a full 5 years! So whether you are looking for a long life alternative or a superior performance unit for the track, you can get both with a guarantee backed by the Volvo performance leader.
S80, V70, S60, XC90 - 2001-2007 - Rear HD endlink
850, 70 series* - 1993-2000 - Front HD endlink
S40, V50, C30 - 2004.5-2007 - Front HD endlink
C70 - 2006-2007 - Front HD endlink
S80, V70, S60, XC90 - 2001-2007 - Front HD endlink
*Fits C70 through 2004

9492804HD Reviewed by John from El MonteThese HD end links noticeably increased steering response in corners and quick lane changes; in conjunction with the IPD strut brace that I installed last year my 850 now has a cost effective handling package for a relatively low dollar investment. Go for it!

HD Front Upper Spring Seat and Rear Shock Upper Body Mounts

We often get calls from Volvo owners about knocks, squeaks, rattles and clunks. Common failures that can create these noises are worn out upper front spring seats or worn out upper rear shock mounts. Volvo front wheel drive models commonly develop a clunk in the front suspension that can be caused by worn out upper spring seats. This can occur in some models with as few as 30K miles and can be exacerbated by performance springs and shocks.To provide increased longevity and better shock damping performance ipd has developed our own heavy duty upper spring seat. Our design incorporates more virgin (non-recycled) rubber which encourages a stronger bond between the rubber and the spring seat center mounting sleeve which is the most common point of failure on this part. ipd’s heavy duty spring seat features additional material in key areas to increase longevity and consistent performance without adding additional noise or vibration into the chassis. Get your vehicle back to handling like a new car and keep it that way!We also offer standard replacement front spring seats (used on '97 and newer models) which was redesigned by the manufacturer to reduce separation between the inner steel sleeve and outer rubber insulator. While these are an improvement over the original design, we have still seen failure in as little as 30,000 miles. We recommend replacing the upper spring seats whenever the struts are replaced as part of regular maintenance. The expense is minimal in comparison to having to do the job over later.

The whole car handles so much better and is very much more responsive. If you’re replacing your struts soon, I recommend this setup. Heavy duty Bilstein struts and HD spring seats by IPD.
