I own a 1999 v70xc bought quite recently. I have a vibration at the front wheels that happens while accelerating and generally while under load. It's been in the shop, replaced an inner tierod still not corrected, put new tires on still not corrected, wheel alignment and removed driveshaft. Still not corrected. Any help would be aprecciated.

Thanks

A bad axle shaft, the voice of experience, either has a bad balance or it lost it's balance.

Yes, usually the passenger side cv axles causes the most vibration issues.

Check the LCAs. If a bushing goes it'll do that. I'd still agree with everyone else and say axle.

I don't have a suggestion for you, sorry, but am very interested in the outcome to this.

I have the same issue with my S70 and I have replaced both CV axles and axle seals while I was in there. We do have a few differences, though. I'm lowered and I'm sure I need a Trans mount and motor mounts, which is most likely contributing to my issue. My lower control arms are in good knick and I'm curious to know why jason257 asked if the axle seal had ever been replaced...

Good luck and keep us posted. If I find anything, I'll get back to you.

Another really common issue that can cause front wheel vibration under load/acceleration is worn out A-arm bushings. And the cheap knock-off replacements don't last long, best to replace with Volvo OEM rubber or better.
