As always, great advice Matt, much appreciated. I sent a note to Amazon Cars a while back on inquiry on their fast road springs, I'll have to dig out the info. These cold prairie -30 temps sure lend themselves to couch surfing lately.

Happy New Year everyone!

Hey friends, I got a question that I hope isn't too silly. In the spring, I want to pull the rear end out of the car, clean up the mounts, paint the rear end, etc., get it all fixed up.
How can I support the rear of the car? My only thoughts at the moment are the rear bumper supports or jack points. I don't want to rest the car on the frame, that's a definite. Those jack points look pretty small, I would feel safer with more jackstands underneath. Any opinions would be welcomed.

And I'll just park this here for fun, been thinking about this for a bit. Not that it will ever get done, but it's nice to think a bit outside the box.
I have been looking into the Aisin Toyota supercharger. It would have to have a custom intake manifold, probably injected, but controlled electrically. I have very little idea of the work involved, but looking at the Judson units out there, it doesn't seem 100% fantasy. The whole reason is to basically emulate my favorite movie, The Road Warrior. Being able to switch on a blower at the pull of a switch just attracts me to no end. For me, its an easy rabbit hole to disappear into. Practicality and feasibility seem low at this point, but it's a hoot to bench race with. Thanks for the indulgence!

FWIW mine is sitting on jackstands at all 4 corners right now, and has been for a while now... :oops: :oops:

I haven't had to drop the axle on the 122, but when I did bushings in the back of a 240 it sat on jack stands at the rear jack points and I sat the axle on another set while I removed the trailing arms and torque rods.

My Canadian has been sitting on 12 ton stands at the rear bumper mount for the past 3 years. I've also left it for a long time on the tab mounts. Providing the inner sill is in good condition - Volvo did design that point to take the weight of the car. They are reinforced inside.

So you're fine either way.

Thanks very much guys!
Just fitted new choke cables today. I got the one from the Greece eBay seller. Both cables were the same length, I had to shorten one at least 10 inches to create the offset. I had to remove the metal cables ends that were supplied as well, there was no way for the ends to fit into the SU clamps. Grose jets go in next to see how they do.
