So the left front side, when turning slowly, was making a noise.....
Mechanic has replaced the left strut mount of the suspension with another aftermarket version........it was only replace 1 and 1/2 years ago?
Then says that the OEM is double the price but does not have the noise problem that has appeared?
Anyone had this issue with aftermarket version strut mount covers?
Also how many kms between wheel alignments?
I rotate ever 10K Kms
Just went for a drive on flat road and swerving at under 10kmh had the noise still there..... Sounds horizontal source not vertical
Planned rotation and wheel alignment but going to check with mechanic again before......

Ok so I have shaved the door handles and cut springs to lower more 245s than I can remember. Last week I got a bit more modern and picked up a 01 s60 2.4 turbo at auction for dirt cheap. The only thing I don't love about this car is the ride height (it's like four miles off the ground). I want to go low, at least two inches. Can I get away with cutting these springs?
A truly unique and one of a kind Volvo S80. One of only a handful in the world to be taken to the next level. The car has been shown in WA and OR at numerous events and featured online a number of times. I am the second owner of the car, and have owned it since 2009. It has been meticulously cared for its whole life, never smoked in and has always been serviced at Sandberg Northwest Volvo in Lynnwood, WA where it was purchased new for $47k. The engine and drivetrain are in perfect working order with no leaks, grime or strange noises. You could eat off of the top and the bottom of the engine. Amsoil 10W40 motor oil and Volvo OE oil filters have been used since I've owned the car. The engine was compression tested recently and tested perfectly with even and strong pressure in all cylinders. New transmission, rear main seal, cam tray and cam seals, new timing belt, new transaxles, new oxygen sensors (all 4), recently new OEM Volvo coil packs (all 6), new steering rack and tie rod ends, recently new radiator and hoses, recent ceramic brake pads, Powerstop slotted rotors with black Brembo caliper covers. 20x10 TSW Zolder wheels wrapped in Nitto Neo-Gen tires with 80% tread life remaining. (Awesome rain performance)
