Re: questions about estimate for broken front coil spring

That strut estimate you've gotten seems way out of line. I think your estimate of approx. $750 (w/ quikstruts and labor) sounds about right. I did a strut refresh (mounts,spring seats, bellows, bump stops, and hardware) last week for $155 in parts. My recent trip to Volvo dealer I noticed $180 hr. l...

Put off doing inner and outer tie rods today, it's windier than hell in the lower Hudson Valley and can't run my compressor because we have not had power since 1:00 a.m.

Re: What did you do to your P2 Volvo today?

Did a headlight restoration on my '06 V70. White compound, 400/600/2000 sandpaper, water spray bottle, carnuba wax, 3hrs., and a lot of elbow grease and they almost look new.

Re: What did you do to your P2 Volvo today?

Replaced spring seats (Rein), mounts (Lemforder), & all strut hardware on '06 V70 103k. No more clunks & rattles. Struts were fine, thanks Pete & Abscate for advice.

Re: Strut question ?

Yes, they still seem to be dampening in both directions I guess I was wrongly expecting them to react like a shock. This is first rebuild of strut for me and decided to reinstall original, FCP has a Mayle strut on sale for 50 bucks, but I decided against them. Does anybody have any experience or inf...

Strut question ?

I just got done breaking down my struts on '06 V70. One spring seat (metal collar) totally detached, the other one torn on the underside about 180 deg. Ordered new seats, mounts, and hardware. I tested the struts by pushing rod all the way down. One returns to full extension within a few seconds, th...

Re: To strut or not to strut

I turned the strut top nuts with wheels off the ground. Endlinks were recently replaced. Sounds like just spring seats might be the most economical way to go now. How about the inner hardware (bellows, bump stops). When you say 3/9 wear are you talking tie rod ends. Orangex, thank you for you advice...

To strut or not to strut

'06 V70 102k miles. I hit one our famous New York State pot holes couple of days ago and have noticed excessive noise in the right front wheel over irregularities in the road. i jacked the car up, no 12/6 o'clock play, very very minimal 3/9 play. Removed the top strut caps and checked nut tightness,...
