I've got a line on a hitch at the local pick-n-pull yard. Its on a 99 V70. Will it fit my new-to-me 99 S70? Thanks!

You can go to AutoZone's web site and plug in the particulars of each car and see if they come up with the same numbers as a check.

If one of them is AWD and the other is not then they will not fit up the same - I tried that one.

+1 on what Lee says. Even an V70XC and AWD are different if I recall correctly and both are AWD. The rear bumpers are different on a S70 and V70 so may fit differently.
