2004 S60 Quick Struts and Sway Bar Links

Post by StickyPocket » Wed Jan 30, 2019 8:12 pm

Thinking about replacing front struts and was wondering if anyone has heard anything about TRQ quick struts. They seem to have good reviews from what I see.

Also want to replace sway bar links. Is genuine Volvo the way to go here, or is OEM ok?

Thanks for the insight. It seems like Sachs quick struts aren't currently available anywhere. Was wondering if anyone has heard about TRQ.

I've been disappointed with longevity when using anything other than genuine Volvo sway bar links on my P80s. Haven't had to replace them on a P2 yet, but I'd go genuine if I had to replace them. Worst of the aftermarket for me were IPD "heavy duty" but that was years ago under prior ownership.
