This looks like the front sub-frame bushing. IPD sells a lot of parts that are not OE Volvo parts. This does not mean they are a bad part as some aftermarket parts are ok too.

It may be worth a call to IPD to confirm you have the correct part shipped to you for your model and year. I have had suppliers ship the wrong parts in the past.

I have not fitted this part myself in the past but had the dealer do it after giving up trying to eradicate an annoying groan in the front of the car.

Hopefully someone else on here can give you guidance on installing the part, or try searching for a guide on MVS for installing the part.

Those are definitely aftermarket, Volvo bushings are rubber. Honestly you're better off with the aluminum bushings than the inserts with rubber bushings (then again, this depends on your NVH tolerance).
That said, my new question is where those aluminum bushings came from. I've only ever seen delrin subframe bushings for these cars, never aluminum. Must be an old part that nobody is making anymore.
