Wanted: Used struts/suspension parts - 99 S70 FWD - Near Boston

Post by smacknab »

Hi all,

I'm hoping someone has some decent front struts that they put on a car that then promptly died, or really any good quality struts with under 50k miles. I'm just trying to avoid choosing between paying full retail or putting quick struts on.

If you have matching back shocks to go with them, even better!

Due to weight, I think shipping would kill any cost savings, so near Boston would be ideal, but I could drive a bit.

Thanks!
Sean

Check if my 1998 struts will fit. I think they will. I’ll ask Brendan for history.

Is that the black 98 V70 you're parting out? I think they'll fit, seems like struts are interchange except the xc. That'd could be great if you find out they're not original and they're worth pulling.

Also, do you still have those Greek seat covers? My in-laws are Greek and I think the seat covers would be worth the laugh.
