Performance Shocks for Your High-Performance Volvo

If maximum ride control, handling performance, and long life are what you want, then Bilstein Heavy Duty or Koni Sport shocks are for you. At this level of quality, shocks and struts become the “defining feel” of your car. Both of these options are recognized by passionate Volvo enthusiasts as the best shocks and struts available for 200, 700, and 900 series models. When combined with upgrades like lowering springs, sway bars, and chassis braces, the outstanding performance potential of your favorite Volvo can be brought to life. Which brand is better? Well, that’s hard to determine, as both provide top-of-the-line performance. For most enthusiasts, it boils down to ride preference. The low pressure gas Konis feel a bit softer in the early stages of the suspension travel while the Bilsteins have a tighter “gas-charged” feel right from the start.

KONI Shocks & Struts

  • Top level sport performance, yet compliant at low speeds
  • Adjustable rebound control
  • Popular alternative to Bilstein when comfort is also important
  • Made in Holland of top quality materials
  • Not uncommon for Konis to last 100,000 miles or more
  • Lifetime warranty

Bilstein Heavy Duty Shocks & Struts

  • Best performing for Sport / Enthusiast
  • Premium German construction & materials
  • On the firm side, but not too harsh
  • Patented digressive valving minimizes sharp impacts
  • Most popular enthusiast upgrade shocks
  • Not uncommon for Bilsteins to last 100,000 miles or more
  • Lifetime warranty

Exceptional Quality in a Long Life Shock

If you’re proud of your Volvo, plan on keeping it for a few years, and are looking for a budget priced performance shock, then consider upgrading to Bilstein Touring Class dampers. They provide exceptional ride quality as well as improved safety and handling. Bilstein Touring Class dampers give excellent performance for the price and offer a ride a bit firmer than stock shocks without feeling too stiff for the daily commute or family hauling. Bilstein Touring Class shocks and struts are gas charged, come with a lifetime warranty and will work well on both stock height and lowered cars.

BOGE Turbo Gas Shocks & Struts

  • Budget upgrade for most non-turbo models
  • Twin tube gas design; not too stiff on the family hauler
  • Most popular replacement: good price & performance
  • Lifetime warranty, typically last 50,000 to 60,000 miles

Bilstein Touring Shocks & Struts

  • Engineering and valving by Bilstein
  • Economical twin tube gas design
  • Popular budget upgrade, a little stiffer than the Boge Turbo Gas
  • Lifetime warranty, typically last 60,000 to 75,000 miles

Shocks & Struts for the Budget-Minded

If you’re on a budget and want the best value in replacement shocks and struts that offer performance and ride quality equal to what your Volvo offered when it was new, then Boge Automatics or Boge Turbo Gas are good choices. Boge Automatics have a 2-year warranty, are what came stock on most Volvos, and will provide good performance for several years. For a moderately priced upgrade with a slightly more controlled feel than stock, consider the gas charged Boge Turbo Gas. The Boge Turbo Gas has a lifetime warranty and is acceptable for use on stock height or lowered cars. Boge Automatics are not recommended for lowered cars.

BOGE Automatic Shocks & Struts

  • Original equipment on many Volvo models
  • Great choice if you like the way your Volvo rode when new
  • Hydraulic design offers compliant performance
  • Economy replacements for the quality-conscious
  • 2-year unlimited mileage warranty
