Need advice re: electronic shock replacement please on my 2012 XC 60. 167,400 miles and going strong. Was told that I need all new shocks. Do I need to replace all four with electronic, or, can I have the mechanic replace with regular shocks? Will warning lights be going off if computer isn't reprogrammed? Many thanks!
Hi, I don't know the answer for Volvo's but like most cars with electronic suspension, if you remove the OE kit in exchange for a standard set up there likely will be a suppressor kit you can buy which "fools" the cars systems that the OE kit is still fitted, this is a common scenario in higher end Audi's like the RS range.
The reason most people change to a standard set up is purely down to cost.
To replace the 4 OE shocks on my RS4 is around 7k, a set of aftermarket coilovers (springs and shocks) is 1500 or less for the parts plus fitting.
167,000 is a fair mileage (same as mine lol).. are you certain you need 4, what was the reason given, was it a dealer or smaller operator, did you get a second opinion.
Any further information may help others chime in on this..
