Bilstein 5125's same as @ToyRoverlander dead chuffed with them:

The tyre is 37" for scale.

 

Front setup - coiler towers for much longness and to really confuse people:

Rear setup - just a little above the chassis because the Volvo lower mounts are super-low on the hub:

FridgeFreezer, Have you got any photo's inside your rear tub when the build was complete? And have you got any photo's / details of the rear Volvo lower mounts?

Volvo front suspension, standard mounts are welded to the axle casing;

You can see it nearest the camera here (no shock fitted):

Volvo rear suspension - the shock mount (28) bolts to the bottom of the portal box;

This sort of shows the tub - the covers are a lot bigger than the really need to be;

It does OK, was never supposed to be an articulation monster - I've got Gon2Far front mounts (visible here) but keep forgetting to unlock them :lol:

The length of the shocks was mostly down to what could fit in the available space and work with the Volvos - the rear mounts give you space for ~14" of shock travel and using turrets on the front allowed it to be the same both ends, although the shorter front leaves on Series are the limiting factor - I think @ToyRoverlander has extended his front hangers to fit rears on the front or possible some other spring (Transit?).
