Update!! Wheels binding after rotor change

Well I posted in my previous thread about my progress I’m seriously thinking it’s the rotors. I tried different pads and new seal kits.

Hello, everyone I finally figured it out. I bought a set of Zimmerman rotors from fcp euro and they fit like a glove with the duralast gold pads. Well I definitely learned my lesson when I buy parts for these Volvo’s. No offense to Rock Auto but I was really in the clouds on this one, I never expected this. I always had good luck with all my cars when I bought parts online and the local stores

I always scan the usual import sites 1st.

Rock is certainly not a site I'd start at. But I have had to order a few times and I guess I lucked out so far that the parts worked out. This is not an endorsement.

The local parts stores all seem to have some parts that are not correct and do not fit. I have had problems with NAPA and CarQuest also. Maybe not surprising with the millions of parts they try to supply for thousands of vehicles.
Shoot, when I worked in manufacturing, we often had our own designed and manufactured parts not fit together because of a problem called tolerance stack up.
