2 or 4 bolt control arms?

Post by diplomaticm3 » Tue Jan 21, 2020 5:53 pm

Is there a way to tell whether in my car has two or four bolt control arms?

It’s a 2000 V70r. I’m not currently located with the car and wanted to get parts ahead of time. Is there no way to confirm via the VIN?

Thanks in advance

Try the Volvo parts web store to see if it gives the VIN breaks for these

Update. Shows both variants with no VIN INFO

maybe get someone to take a pic underneath while you are away?

I believe ALL AWD cars and SUVs use 4-bolt as well as C-70 reinforced subframes. (but it's just what I believe)
Current Volvos:
1998 V70 T5, 112k sat 5 years, still in mechanical coma (finally at the top of the pile )
2004 XC90 T6 AWD: 186k, 60 on transaxle ( traded in )
1998 POS70 N/A: DD/training aid, 236k but really about 240k, I think...ABS module( passed on to son who sold it)
