I wish you the best of luck with any rubber part branded "URO." Please report back over time.

Here's what Betty the Volvo did this week - we visited the body shop because a woman with no drivers license backed her pickup into our rear bumper while my wife was parked at work. Hit and run (no license). Two witnesses, one followed her to get the license plates. We had two notes and a Policeman's card on the windshield. We were impressed with the civic behavior of people on the street!

Police took a couple weeks to track down an address and nail them. She got three citations.

Nothing structural - all it did was punch a hole in the bumper cover, but it's covered and we want it fixed. So there she sits covered in dust waiting for parts.

Hey boys and girls...MDK here. So. I bought some new quick struts from 1aauto.com last November. Cincinnati streets are pretty beat up. About 2 months ago, the upper spring seats started knocking. Get what you pay for...i guess. Uh. So...I bought some used ones from Erie Volvo via eBay and replaced them today after work. I don't have any power tools, did it all by hand. The new " used " ones are Sachs. 225$ ... free shipping. Took it for a test drive didn't change the ride height or affect the alignment yeah, like that. MDK rolling on.
