go with a reputable brand, thats all I would suggest. Only buying from Volvo would be silly

Sorry, I changed from MAK to BBS rims! 18" . -30mm eibach pro-kit. Much improved handling. (On bad roads little bit harsh, but not uncomfortable.). With original springs my wife and kids tended to get sick. With the eibachs installed body roll in all directions is far gone, giving very good handling and no more sick family members B-))

30mm Is a big drop using the standard shock absorbers. Most manufactures usually recommend shortened shock as the standard shocks may bottom out on bumps in the road.
I am not an expert but I had my suspension lowered using H & R coils and Koni shocks on my Nissan 370Z. That advise was from the South African distributors of both brands and seemed logical to me as shocks are designed to work over specific travel lengths.
BTW: Your V40 looks super sexy with the lowered height and new mags.
