I wish you a lot of luck with those cars. I have a 2000 V70R and it drives me nuts all the time. The list of what hasn't broken is way shorter than the one that has all the things that have.

Check the rear sub-frames are not eaten up behind the rear wheels where they mount to the main frame. We get a lot of spray de-icer on our roads up here and it looks like someone has poured acid on them. Replacing them or finding good used ones is hard and expensive. Many parts for the rear of the cars are now obsolete or hard to find. The rear vented rotors on the 2000 were a 1 year model specific fitment and the rotors may now be available but I am not sure of that. There may be aftermarket options out there though.
