Illustration for article titled The V70 had a little work done today

New front control arms that I got very on sale from Rock Auto, OE Lemforder. Rear sway bar links, fuel filter, and trans fluid fully flushed. No bad signs in the fluid which is reassuring. The new control arms made the biggest difference. No more play in the steering, no more bump and torque steering, no more clunking. It’s quite nice. Next on the list would be wider wheels and tires, and IPD sway bars. And if I was getting really involved, a bigger intercooler and bigger trans cooler....that probably won’t happen, I don’t think this is a super long term car. So good for highway trips, but not the ideal city car/daily.
