Probably best to pull part numbers from volvo we store

Looking at FCP, though, it appears not, but it’s only showing T applications for your car?

Do you have a NA S60?

2003 NA Looked up on Fcp there are indeed different numbers for the NA and the rest of turbo engines. So must be a different driveshaft. One on the non turbo, and another one same for all turbo, incl the awd

In the world of P80 Volvo 850, there are different PNs for turbo vs non-turbo axles.

However, people have mixed back and forth w/o issues.

My guess is that it is similar issue.

I can tell you that the drivers side axle for NA with manual transmission has a different length than the auto axle. It is about 2" longer.
Not sure about the passenger side but I will probably find out soon because I just discovered a split boot on that side.

How many miles when you have split boot on driver's side?

I just did the boots on my 2004 V70, will update on the tips/tricks soon. I used GKN boots.

Yes, the axles on N/A 02 V70 and turbo 05 XC70 are different. Turbo AWD and FWD are also different, at least passenger side.

Thanks all. My boots are still fine, however I'm chasing a weird vibration at 60mph. Weird, because it's intermittent and depends on the road surface - or perhaps I should say 'sideways' incline angle.
