What's the standard shocks for it


Usually when a car has air shocks that car is built with an air compressor to keep those shocks blown up. My Buick had air shocks and a compressor but the shocks wore out and was losing all the air making the compressor wear out. Instead of replacing everything at a great expense I had new air shocks put on throwing the compressor away. and run an air line just under my license plate, Just pump them up like pumping a tire . I check them about every three months and saved a lot of money.

Front struts worn out needing replaced,need to know how to replace, have information??


They are just shocks. You'll need to remove the top nut of the shock, remove the washer and rubber bushing, remove the bolt going thru the bottom of the shock, and remove the shock.

Do i need a spring compresser to be able to remove the front shocks


No you do not need to compress the springs to install new shocks. Todays shocks have a nitrogen charge; you'll note your new shocks will have a cable on them. Install the lower portion of the shock, next with the upper end aimed to where you want it to go, cut the cable holding the shock back. The nitrogen within the shock will cause it to slowly extend. If you cut the cable prior to install you'll need to compress the shock and wire in down in to place for install.
Please let me know if this helped,

Replacing shocks with air shocks on rear


The leaf springs should hold up the bed. The shocks generaly determine how much bounce there is when you go over a bump. In air shocks they can lower the vehicle and still keep the vehicle from bounceing a lot.

Can i replace my gas adjust with coil spings on my 94 volvo 960, they want $300.00 each plus $200 labor, there has to be a cheaper way, please help


If you have the self-leveling Nivomat rear suspension system, you can replace your Nivomat shock absorbers with standard shock absorbers. You also have to replace the coil springs with standard coil springs. Please note that a combination of standard springs and Nivomat shock absorbers, or Nivomat compatible springs and standard shock absorbers, will not work.

If it is just the cost of springs that you are concerned about, try purchasing your springs elsewhere, and having your local mechanic install them. Two good sources online are; usautoparts.net and autopartswarehouse.com . You can find Nivomat compatible coil springs for less than $120 per pair.

Nivomat self- leveling or not.


Automatic self-levelling is standard on the seven-seat models. What model do you have?

Volvo 960 24v 3ltr auto estate


I have had the same symptom on my 1994' 960 (sedan).

I thought (told by the dealer) the shocks had worn out (although the car was only 110000 km !...), so I had the dealer change them (they had a promotion). It did not change much of anything, except it lifts a little bit more (about 1 cm more), but still "sags" after about 1/2 hour.
It takes about 1 km driving to pump back up.

I have never been observing that symptom on nivomat-equipped 940 wagons with solid rear axles, and knowing that 960 sedans (with multilink rear suspension) having nivomat wider (3.5") than rear solid axle wagons (940 and early 960) which are 2.5".

So, my interpretation is those wider ones support a great deal of the weight, even more that of 940 wagons, so they react differently by sagging more, due to internal micro-leaks.
Also, and consistently, springs with nivomats are thinner and they may also wear out faster than on standard supension, putting even more load on nivomats to compensate.

Therefore my conclusion was :
- It is not because of the shocks,
- It may be the springs
- It is not really a problem, is it ?
