My $3,000 Volvo C30 drives like it got in a fight with a werewolf. After 150,000 miles on the factory suspension, it's all shot. The turbocharged 5 cylinder engine runs perfectly so it will all be worth it once this car is sorted. Let's get started on the rear suspension, replacing the shocks and sway bar end links. Just that should massively improve the car. Then we'll go flying in the Cessna 182.

For those replacing CV's on these cars, definitely buy the OEM ones. All the aftermarket ones are terrible. I've had one of the aftermarket ones explode on the freeway. Just buy a used one in good shape and reboot/grease it.

I like the way the shocks are attached on this car. My daughter and I are replacing shocks and shock mounts on her 09 S60 and the metal sleeves the bolts thread into on the shock mounts twisted loose from the mount when removing it. Had to spend an hour trying to get vice grips in to hold the sleeves to finish removing the bolts so I could remove the old shock mounts. It was a great demonstration that things don't always go as expected, and sometimes you have to just be creative, and be persistent when dealing with old equipment or cars. You'll like how easy it is to replace the front end components on that car. Volvo did a good job making it super easy to work on the front suspension.

Huh, why not uprate the suspension? You'd see a much greater improvement going from stock base to a decent aftermarket. The performance version of the C30 has some minor suspension tweaks a quicker steering ratio and logos and body kit tweaks. A stiffer rear bar from a mazdaspeed 3 for instance would dial out some understeer. A flash and a larger intercooler and you can safely get another 30-50 hp. But I guess this is a fix and flip. Don't mind me and my scope creep.

If you & your CFI are up for it, check out KVBT. We have a great fly-in food place at the FBO (Louise) & are about 200 air miles from Wichita. Airport adjacent, there's a brewery (for pax of course) and a rock gym. Bonus, there are some historic warbirds based here. P-51's, F2G Super Corsair, UH-1, T-28 etc. Plus some stunt planes and a Stearman.

Love that you're impressed with OE struts lasting 150K-miles. My Toyota Highlander has 400K-kms (250K-miles) and the original struts were just replaced and they weren't terrible, and I've even done a lot of off-roading and rough-road driving in it. Our Subaru Forester's front struts were worn out at 200K-kms (125K-miles) and now we don't buy Subarus anymore...

Nice mix, cars and airplanes. When I first started flying one of my friends had a Cherokee 140 and we would fly from Clemson S C to Myrtle Beach for lunch. That is a trip complete across the whole state. One time we fly down and couldn’t land because of a 35 knot cross wind so we fly back to Clemson and had dinner instead. Love flying but had to give it up for health reasons. I enjoy you channel.

Yes! You always do a run up after you have shut down. Read the checklist. After you are accelerating down the runway in attempt to takeoff especially at a soft field or short field you do not want to try to diagnose why you’re not getting full power. Technology will give you great insights but you have to do the tests to identify any problems prior to taking off.

Where is the swap part? This is just a repair and replace. A swap implies that you are going from a stock suspension to an upgraded suspension from the sport model. Also, why do you insist that you need to new CV shafts. There is nothing indicating that. Even the car ninja said he didn’t think there was an issue. When can we literally watch JR go? Preferably away... maybe launch yourself into space?
