A BC-Racing coilover set is available for the Volvo 240, 740 and 940; Because Volvo has chosen to manufacture the strut and the stub axle housing from 1 part, this set is not 100 Plug and play. The strut must be sawn, cleaned and then the screw set can be welded to the stub axle housing.
Considering this is not something everyone can or wants to do, LCM has the BC-Racing welding service. For €75.00 + €100.00 deposit We weld the coilover and supply it as a Plug and Play set.
Shortening and cleaning of struts
For the welding process it is of very great importance that the material that is welded should be completely blank and clean in it. You can do this with a grinding disc on an angle grinder and a file for the tricky corners.

Now that the stub are stripped of rust and well degreased they can be welded to the new BC-Racing set. The sets of BC-Racing are always very well packaged and are a delight for the eye when they are extracted.
The shock absorber itself must not be heated. This is no problem at BC-Racing because the height set is separate from the spring tension. This means that the bus in which the strut is seated can simply be unscrewed. This should then be pushed over the fusee piece.
After we are satisfied with the passing and checked that we have actually taken the right side, 4 to 5 adhesive tabs can be placed which may prevent warping.
After a little black paint the whole looks neat and it is ready to be placed under the car. For a video of the installation you can visit our YouTube channel: Youtube.com/lucacarmods
