Hi guys - need to replace the front shocks on my 2006 AWD V50 - local parts store only shows replacement shocks for a FWD V50/S40 - he is adamant the parts would be different and is refusing to sell me the shocks because he can't guarantee they will fit?

I'm having a hard time finding these online as well, even http://www.volvopartswebstore.com/ is coming up empty.... :facepalm:

What do you think? Are they different?

Interesting... the dealer tells me they are not. My local mechanic tells me they are not the same either.

I do know (now) that the back shocks are 2 inches longer on the AWD. Will keep looking.

Are there different part numbers? YES. They list multiple shocks just for front wheel drive. Sport, dynamic, comfort, w/automatic, etc. The fitment is identical though. Buy some Konis or Bilsteins & be done.
