Nivomat Conversion

Saggy Rear End?

All 760 models, 780 and 940 SE sedans 1983 to 1994 are equipped with a self leveling independent rear suspension known as the Nivomat system. This system uses a special shock and spring combination to maintain ride height even when the car is fully loaded. When the shocks fail, the rear of the car will begin to sag noticeably even when it is unloaded. Nivomat shocks are over $390 each from the dealer, so we have developed this economical kit that converts the rear suspension to a conventional shock-and-spring set-up.

Our conversion kit with specially modified shocks and custom springs is less than the cost of a single Nivomat from your dealer and our kits will provide better handling and ride quality. These shocks also have a lifetime warranty compared with only one year on Nivomats purchased from your dealer. Kits include two specially built shocks and springs for mounting in the stock locations with no need for modification. Professional installation recommended as the springs in the independent rear suspension can be difficult to remove. This kit could save you over $500.00 compared with the cost of two new Nivomat shocks from your dealer.

-Nivomat rear shocks are automatic self leveling and used on the models below.-

Tie Rod Ends, Ball Joints and Steering Rack Boots

Tie rods and ball joints are an oft-overlooked piece of the suspension puzzle. Like all other suspension pieces though, they are subject to wear. Whenever you’ve got a wheel off, make a point to inspect them. Inspect the boots on the ball joints and tie rod ends for any signs of cracking or leaking. Also check for any excessive play in any of the components. If you’re noticing the steering acting up or not doing what you just told the steering wheel to do, it may be time to replace these pieces. Timely replacement will save more costly damages done to your vehicle if a tie rod or ball joint fails in service.

Upper Strut Reinforcement Plates

The early “GT” models had upper and lower chassis braces from the factory and beefy strut reinforcement plates that helped the stock strut towers safely absorb additional stress. These plates also work well to shore up a tower that may have a bit of corrosion. Plates mount between the body and upper strut bushing. Easily installed when adding springs or replacing struts.

Upper Strut Mounts

If you hear creaking, groaning or knocking from the front of your Volvo when turning sharply, it could mean the upper strut mounts and bearings are in need of replacement.
